Welcome to Leo Tolstoy Institute of Philology and Intercultural Communication

The history of the Institute of Philology and Intercultural Communication dates back to the foundation of Kazan Imperial University in 1804. Named after Leo Tolstoy, who was a student of Kazan University, the Institute today is one of the largest schools of KFU with about three thousand undergraduate and graduate students and 300 faculty and staff members including over 100 international scholars and students from the USA, China, South Korea, Turkey, Iran, France, Iraq, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and other countries.

The Institute comprises 3 academic divisions: the Higher School of Russian and Foreign PhilologyGabdulla Tukay Higher School of Tatar Studies and Turkology and the Higher School of Russian Language and Intercultural Communication. The Institute trains philologists and educators with expertise in linguistics, literary studies, Russian, Tatar and foreign languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Turkish, etc.), interpretation and translation, educational technologies, design, music, and choreography. We offer double majors (ex., Russian + English), programs taught in English, as well as bachelor and master programs specifically designed for international students interested in Russian as a foreign language. The institute also offers doctoral degree programs for those wishing to conduct research and obtain a Candidate of Science Degree (PhD). We host several Research and Education Centers as well as Kazan International Linguistic Center that offers short-term and long-term language courses, professional development and second education programs for in-service and pre-service educators, translators, culturologists, etc.
