Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University formerly known as the Immanuel Kant Russian State University or in brief the Kant University and as Kaliningrad State University (1967-2005), is a university in the Russian city of Kaliningrad. The university claims to maintain the traditions of its German predecessor, the German University of Königsberg.
The former University of Königsberg was commonly known as the Albertina. It was East Prussia’s sole university and was specially regarded for its mathematics and astronomy. The campus was severely damaged by British aerial bombing in August 1944 during World War II. The Albertina was closed after Königsberg was captured by the Red Army in 1945.
After the war, Königsberg was renamed Kaliningrad and the new Russophone Kaliningrad State Pedagogical Institute used the campus of the Albertina from 1948 to 1967, including the main Albertina building inaugurated in 1862, in which some of the original structure can still be seen. In 1967, the institute received the status of a university and became known as Kaliningrad State University.
In 2005, during the celebrations of the 750th anniversary of the founding of Königsberg, President Vladimir Putin of Russia and Chancellor Gerhard Schröder of Germany announced that the university would be renamed Immanuel Kant Russian State University in honour of Immanuel Kant.
As of 2005, the university consisted of twelve faculties with courses ranging from Natural Sciences to the Humanities. It had approximately 12,800 students enrolled, both undergraduate and post-graduate, and 580 faculty staff. IKSUR’s Kant Society was created to study Kantianism, or Kantian philosophy. The university is also interested in the historical connections between Königsberg and Russia as far back as the 16th century.
In 2010-2011 the university is undergoing an enlargement and rebranding process which will lead to changing its name from Immanuel Kant State University of Russia to Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University.
The level of international cooperation places IKBFU amongst the top ten higher educational institutions of Russia. One of the goals of the International Office of IKBFU is to promote interest in the Russian educational system among the Baltic Sea States. The aim of the International Office is managing and coordinating international activities of the university as a whole, its students and Ph.D. candidates, teachers and staff members. The International Office deals not only with the academic and research exchange programs or organization of foreign delegations visits, but also launches and arranges international events including international cyber sport tournaments and theatre festivals.
