Since 1979 the Department of Russian for Foreign Citizens has annualy received for studying students and probationers from more than 40 countries of the world. For this period of time more than 2000 students from different countries have been prepared here.

The Department enjoys good reputation due to the highly-skilled faculty each of whom knows not less than two foreign lanuages (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese). They use modern intensive methods of teaching Russian to foreigners as well as technical and audio-visual means. Moreover, most of the professors have had the experience of teaching Russian abroad. Just therefore, a lot of foreign students and probationers, who want to get a thorough knowledge of Russian, prefer to study at this Department.

Today the Department is actively in search of new forms of international cooperation, expanding the sphere of its activity in the field of education. One of the directions is teaching of Russian for foreign students on the contract base. After this course of Russian the students have the possibility to continue their studies at the Universities and other higher educational establishments of the Republic of Belarus and in the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (former Soviet Union).
