International students can apply to study at IKBFU for free through the Quota Scheme. The scholarship completely waives all tuition fees for full-degree Bachelor and Master programmes. The Scheme also works for exchange studies. The Quota Scheme is based on the partnership agreements between two countries in the field of education. The number of quotas varies for each country.
There are several interdisciplinary priorities within the three major research areas:
• genetic engineering;
• marine microbiology;
• applied engineering technologies;
• fundamental mathematics and informatics;
• information security.
The three interdisciplinary areas make it possible to integrate all competitive areas developing at the IKBFU as a classical university. Innovative results have been achieved in these areas.
The Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University was established on October 13, 2010 by an order of the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation. A most innovative university, the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University strives to maintain and spread academic and research traditions of its predecessor – the Albertina University of Königsberg.
The Albertina, one of the oldest universities in Europe, has a 460-year history. I. Kant, J. Hamann, J. Herder, F.W. Bessel, K. Jacobi, F. Linderman, А. Gurvits, D. Hilbert and H. Helmholtz taught at the Albertina University. К. Donelaitis, the founder of Lithuanian literature, studied theology there. E.T.A. Hoffman, the famous writer and composer, attended lectures in philosophy at Albertina.
The University's greatest professor is Immanuel Kant, the world-famous philosopher, who was a Russian citizen for some time. The name of I. Kant forever linked the city of Königsberg and the Albertina University with the global history of culture and became the ‘trademark’ of the region.
