Previously, students participating in this program used to spend one semester in Germany. Starting from 2019, the list of subjects offered at FMA, and German proficiency requirements will be significantly extended.
"The educational program history dates back to the establishment of the research laboratory "Stratigraphy of oil and gas bearing basins" in 2014.

"I also was lucky to pursue the double degree program "Stratigraphy" between KFU and TU FMA. I spent one semester in Germany and carried out a study of crustaceans in cooperation with Doctor Frank Scholze and Professor Jörg Schneider. Now I am a research fellow at the university and I am pursuing my postgraduate studies. This year in Germany I managed to work with a collection of conchostracans using a state-of-the-art microscope and make a few sketches of shells for further measurements. The program provides invaluable experience in working with world-class scientists".
During the visit the staff of the Institute of Geology and Petroleum Technologies of KFU signed a number of joint research agreements with the Faculty of Tectonophysics and Geothermochronology, the Laboratory of Organic Petrology, the Institute of Drilling and Mining Operations, the Institute of Mineralogy.
