About the DAAD at the BelGU

"Over the past few years, the Belgorod State University has become one of Russia's most sought-after and renowned universities," according to the Bavarian University Center for Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe. "More than 23,000 students are enrolled primarily in the humanities and social sciences. However, the scientific and technical field is also well developed."

Belgorod State University is one of the few universities in the Russian Federation to be recognized as National Research Universities. The position of a DAAD-Lektorat was established in 2015 and comes under the department for German and French Philology of the Pedagogical Institute. Here, German teachers are trained. Another department for German and French Philology is situated at the Institute for Intercultural Communication and International Relations. Interpreters and translators are trained here. The DAAD lecturer conducts teaching activities for both departments.

Belgorod is located in south-western Russia and is considered a clean, medium-sized Russian city with a reputation for offering a good life. This might be linked to the pleasant climate, which is rather continental: a bit colder in wintertime and somewhat hotter in summer than in Germany. Moscow is 700 km to the north and is easily reached by plane or overnight train. There are also some smaller universities and institutes of higher education in Belgorod. In 2017, for example, the intercultural festival "Deutsche Tage in Belgorod" was staged together with the University of Arts and Culture.
