The University is among the participants of Project 5-100, a program to increase the international competitiveness of Russian universities among the world’s leading scientific and educational centers. During the past nine decades, the University of Tyumen grew from a small agro-educational school into a progressive educational center supporting the Tyumen region. 

The university has come a long way to become one of the best universities in Russia. In 2017 the rebranding of the university has taken place. Tyumen State University stepped into the new era as the University of Tyumen. UTMN got the new T-logo. The design project was developed in the studio of Artemy Lebedev, the country’s leading design company. 

The University of Tyumen started a large transformation of the educational process.  The university introduced Individual Educational Trajectories (IET). First, the new model of education was tested in three institutes of the university and one greenfield – School for Advanced Study. In 2019, it was implemented for the entire university.
