The institute is actively working on the implementation of projects, aimed at the broadening of international cooperation in academic field considering the difficult epidemiological situation. The world is getting used to new reality and international student exchanges are growing in intensity.
In September 2021, Tatyana Yarmina, 4-year student at the Institute of Translatology, Russian Studies, and Multilingualism, won a grant for Erasmus+ education program at Cadiz University, Spain, within the partnership between IFLIT and Cadiz University. The program implies improvement of linguistic competency of students, as well as formation of professional competencies within the specialized academic courses, which may be chosen by a student. The residence in the target-language country within four months of education will significantly improve a language level, broaden the cultural knowledge, and give an opportunity to apply new knowledge on intercultural communication in practice.
