The Centre of Sociology of Higher Education is a vibrant platform for research in the field of Russian and international higher education. The centre is academically-oriented and focused on the following areas:

How Political Whims and Woes Have Afflicted Education Internationalization

It was back into the summer of 2018 when Dr. Hans de Wit, a renowned authority on global higher education, came up with a call for essays on wins and losses of academic internationalization over the past quarter-century to be featured in University World News. Irina Shcheglova, researcher at the IOE Center for the Sociology of Higher Education, was only too enthralled to take up this challenge. 

A new research article in the Journal of Academic Ethics

Student academic dishonesty is a pervasive problem for universities all over the world. The development of innovative practices and interventions for decreasing dishonest behaviour requires understanding factors influencing academic dishonesty. Previous research showed that personal, environmental, and situational factors affect dishonest behaviour at a university. The set of factors and the strength of their influence can differ across countries. There is a lack of research on factors affecting student dishonesty in Russia. A sample of 15,159 undergraduate students from eight Russian highly selective universities was surveyed to understand what factors influence their decision to engage in dishonest behaviour.

Are Russian Students Becoming More Dishonest During College?

One of the biggest challenges for the Russian higher education system is to combat academic dishonesty among students. Why do the Russian students tend to become more dishonest during college? What is wrong with Russian universities and how to solve the problem of academic dishonesty.
