The integration of the university in the world educational space, the expansion of educational and cultural relations with foreign partners, its participation in the dynamic development of international relations and competitiveness in the global education market is an important indicator of the University’s level.
Dagestan State University is distinguished by extensive international links and pursues active policy for their development. In order to develop the strategy of the international activities of the university and methods of its implementation and coordination, the Office of International Affairs has been operating successfully in Dagestan State University since 1983, which now includes the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Department of International Accreditation
The result of its successful work is the fact that today the DSU collaborates with more than 30 universities representing 20 countries, including the USA, the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Latvia, Turkey, Iran and Egypt. On the basis of agreements and contracts signed with the above listed institutions over the past few years, more than 300 undergraduate and graduate students held their linguistic and scientific training practice in Egypt, Iran, Turkey, Germany, England, Poland and Bulgaria. For example, according to the agreement on cooperation between the DSU and the University of Asyut, students of our university hold their language training practice annually for two months in Asyut, where in addition to the Arabic language they study various disciplines on history and culture of Egypt. They are also given the opportunity to see historical and cultural places of interest of the country. A similar training program with the opportunity to get acquainted with the historical and cultural places of interest of Dagestan is given annually to the students of Asyut University during their language training practice in Russia.
In addition, each spring a group of students of DSU leaves to the Turkish Republic for the language training practice at the university “Fatih” (Istanbul) for one month. By allocated quota of the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, the representatives of the university successfully participate in the contest. It is important to note that despite the significant limitations on quotas, every year Dagestan State University sends up to 10 employees of DSU to different foreign countries as a part of the scientific work and internships.
