Togliatti State University: international relationships

Togliatti State University has always placed special emphasis on the process of internationalization. Establishment of national and international links has become one of its main objectives.

TSU is implementing the main principles of Bologna Process: introduction of the three-cycle system, education based on competences and learning outcomes, development of student and teacher mobility. Cooperation with international partners makes a major impact on adopting Bologna principles.

Togliatti State University has cooperation agreements with universities and institutions across the world in the areas of research, education collaboration and student mobility. It currently cooperates with over 20 universities and institutions in Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, France, the UK, Poland, China, the USA, Kazakhstan, and the Ukraine. A major emphasis is made on developing joint courses and programs:

  • Joint minor International Business and Finance, jointly developed and taught in English by TSU and INHOLLAND University since 2007
  • ERASMUS Intensive Program: Local Decision Making

TSU students take part in major international events, such as II International Student Forum in Rome, Italy, and III International Student Forum in Berlin, Germany.

Each year we invite distinguished professors to Togliatti to conduct lectures and seminars for our students. The university holds a number of international conferences and carries out joint academic, research and consultancy projects with universities across Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States and Asia.

International Cooperation Department provides leadership, service and support for the international activities of TSU students, faculty and staff. The department encourages, promotes and seeks opportunities for members of the TSU community to effectively pursue their international interests and gives the opportunities to enhance their international and intercultural competences by networking with international academic, government and non-government agencies around the world.

International students from 11 countries study at TSU. Most students come from the Commonwealth of Independent States but English speaking students are welcome to participate in joint projects with partner universities and summer schools. 

TSU International Programs Department ensures that overseas students coming to study in Togliatti receive a warm welcome.
