Bashkir State University
Bashkir State University is a classic university in the city of Ufa of the Russian Federation which is also considered to be the first institution of Bashkortostan and one of the founders of the Association of Russian classical universities. Bashkir State University was established in 1909 as the Ufa Teacher Training Institute, and in 1919 Ufa Teacher Training Institute was transformed into the Ufa Institute of Education. In 1929 Ufa Institute of Education was established as Bashkir State Pedagogical Institute.
In 1857 Bashkir State Pedagogical Institute received state university status and became Bashkir State University. For more than 100 years Bashkir State University has prepared highly qualified specialists for the different areas of the economy.

The university faculty consists of famous specialists who are involved in teaching, medical and scientific activities.

Thanks to the international summits of SCO (Shangai Cooperation Organization) and BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa), which were held in the capital of the Republic of Bashkortostan in 2015, Ufa became a new congress center of Russia. Summits gave impetus to the development of international cooperation with China, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan, and strengthened cooperation with leading universities in Germany. Nowadays, university students, physicians, and professors are being integrated into international practice, our scientists are conducting joint research on topical problems of medicine.
