I am happy to welcome you on PFUR web-site.
Let me present Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia to you. It was established in 1960 and till 1992 was called Peoples’ Friendship University named after Lumumba. It goes without saying that a lot has changed at the University since those times, including its name. The number of schools and branches of study has increased; a two-level education system has been introduced (i.e. Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree Programmes); the number of students has considerably grown; new additional syllabi have been set up. This site will give you more detailed information about our University.
Our international classic University has been rated among the first five best Universities of Russia for the last decade. One of our main assets is the possibility of getting more than one degree: a degree in your chosen profession, one or two degrees in foreign languages and a degree in second higher education. Our graduates’ success in career and business proves the high quality of our education.
However, the nature of the University, the pattern of University life remains unchanged. It is characterized by the spirit of cooperation, friendship, mutual understanding and assistance. Where else can you meet representatives of 130 countries of the world. We are molding intellectual elite, future leaders for Russia and other countries worldwide.
Besides, the University provides a full life for its students . It’s not just studies, tests, credits and exams, but also physical training (there are 32 sport clubs ranging from soccer to yoga); creative activities in 16 studios, choirs, interest groups of our Interclub; character building and cultivating strong personal qualities and social mindedness in PFUR social structures.
Summing up let me assure you that our University provides widest opportunities. Welcome to its website!
