On March 12, 2024, the Rector of the Bhagat Phool Singh Mahila Vishwavidyala (Sonipat, India) Dr. Sudesh Chhikara and the Rector of Minin University Viktor Sdobnyakov signed a Memorandum of Understanding online.

According to the Rector of the pedagogical university Viktor Sdobnyakov , since the beginning of cooperation with India, which started in 2023, the university has opened the Center for Open Education in Russian and Russian language in this country and established friendly relations with six higher educational institutions, as well as with the Indian Association of Teachers of Russian Language and Literature.

"India is one of the most important international partners for Russia. The integration of best practices, the exchange of huge experience in pedagogy accumulated both in Indian and our universities, I am sure, will help bring the quality of education to a new level.  Our graduates determine the level of training of schoolchildren who will later come to develop all spheres of our life - from culture and art to medicine and instrumentation. And together with our Indian colleagues we will find points of growth for our universities," said Victor Sdobnyakov.

Rector of Bhagat Phool Singh Mahila Vishwavidyala Dr. Sudesh Chhikara believes that education is an instrument of change and is committed to making the university a world-renowned center of knowledge and women's education.

"The signing of the Memorandum with Minin University will promote friendship between the universities, as well as strengthen ties between Russia and India. The plans include successful and long-term cooperation in pedagogy, linguistics, economics and natural sciences," said Dr. Sudesh Chhikara.

The partnership between Minin University and Bhagat Phool Singh Mahila Vishwavidyala will be implemented through academic mobility programs, development of joint Bachelor’s and Master’s degree educational programs, research projects, and joint summer and winter schools.


Bhagat Phool Singh Mahila Vishwavidyala is the first public women's university of North India, which began its history in 1936 as a boarding school for girls and received its unique status in 2006. Currently, there are 10 faculties in the university.
