In 2020, Kazan University received a notable token of recognition for its work in teacher education in the past five years. According to the Times Higher Education, our university is now among the top one hundred in the Education subject rankings. Currently, this is the best position among the universities of Russia, CIS, and Eastern Europe. This validates the strategy in teacher education that the university has been implementing over the past years. 2020 is also a special year because it marks ten years of our federal status – the status granted by an executive order of the President of Russia. Currently, KFU is among the ten largest Russian universities; we have about 50,000 students in the majority of the existing higher education specializations. The University collaborates in many scientific and educational programs, including a federal project for boosting the international competitiveness of Russian universities.
