February 12, 2014 – According to the agreement between the Center of International Education at Moscow State University and Elabuga Institute, the latter will launch a center on learning Russian language that will not only provide training programs but will also be certified to carry out state examination in Russian for foreigners.
For the duration of the agreement the Center at Elabuga Institute will represent the interests of the Russian state testing system of foreign citizens taking the Russian language, for whom Russian is a non-native language.
