IKBFU International Test Centre has been voted the best among 64 Cambridge English language assessment centres affiliated with Russian higher education institutions. Cambridge exam certificates are widely known and recognized by all higher education institutions in the world.
IKBFU Centre was founded in 2013 as a follow up to a TEMPUS project implemented at the University. The Centre specializes in testing language skills as well as in providing intensive language courses to both IKBFU students and staff. The work of the Centre is driven by a steadfast commitment to delivering educational excellence and offering high value to both IKBFU students and faculty.
Igor Zhukovsky, Vice-rector for International and Public Relations:
‘IKBFU has launched an experiment on integrating Cambridge certificate exams into the University’s system of language training to meet the ever growing demand. We are getting ready to recognize the results of Cambridge exams as a Master’s programme admission exam in English. Bachelor students will not have to take their English language course as a part of their degree programme provided they have successfully passed a Cambridge certificate exam. I believe we have to drastically change the very approach to language teaching and testing. The new system will allow us to be more objective in assessing language skills of IKBFU students and staff’.
238 IKBFU professors and students have passed their Cambridge exams since 2013.
