International Office

International Affairs Office

International cooperation is a scope of activities, aimed at mutually-beneficial collaboration with foreign educational and scientific institutions, as well as businesses in order to develop international academic cooperation, international economic activity and strengthening intercultural relations. 

Since 1993 the Amur State University has been establishing international cooperation by opening a Department of International Relations and Foreign Economic Cooperation. In 1997 it was renamed in the Department of International Relations. Since that time it changed its name twice: in 2001 – the Department of International Projects and in 2014 – the International Office.

Today the InternationalOffice actively develops international activity, including the following:

  • Offering undergraduate, graduate and additional courses for international students;
  • Holding and participating in international scientific events both in and outside Russia;
  • Developing joint scientific and academic projects and programs together with international partners;
  • Promoting academic exchanges of students and staff;
  • Establishing and maintaining cooperation with foreign universities (finding contacts, conducting negotiations, signing contracts and agreements, etc.).

Geographic location of Blagoveschensk defines the main direction of international cooperation, i.e. relations with China. The Amur State University has many partners from China: Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT), Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), Helogjiang provincial Academy of social sciences, Harbin University of Science and Technology, Heihe University, Dongbei University of Finance and Economics, et al.

In 2012 AmSU joined the Association of the Universities of the Russian Far East and Siberia and North-Eastern Regions of China. Since 2013 AmSU has been contributing to the Association of Sino-Russian Technical Universities (the ASRTU) that consists of 29 Russian and Chinese universities.
