In Kazan Federal University there are traditional and distributed types of organizational structures of teacher education:
The integrative type of organizational structure of teacher education will be implemented in the framework of the project.
Subject training of future teachers is carried out on the basis of relevant institutions, which are part of StrAU (Institute of Fundamental Medicine and Biology, Institute of Philology and Intercultural Communication, Institute of Physics, etc.), having necessary scientific, educational, human and material resources.
