Russian-Swedish Centre for Education and Research was founded in 1996 by the RSUH and the Swedish Institute (Stockholm). Centre’s teachers have created unique courses on regional studies, Swedish history and literature, historiography, culture, art and design, economics and political system, mass media, as well as theoretical linguistic disciplines. There is always one native speaker working at the Centre. Students have the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the Swedish language at the Swedish Institute’s summer courses.
The Centre has organized many international academic conferences and round tables and published more than twenty books in RSUH Publ.
The head of the Centre is Tamara Torstendahl Salytjeva, Associate Professor, Honorary Doctor of Uppsala University.
The annual celebration of St. Lucia's Day in Russian-Swedish Centre brings together all admirers of the Swedish culture not only from the RSUH but also from other Moscow universities.
