In July 2003, the Secretary of State for Education and Training and the Minister of Education and Science of Russian Federation, signed a statement of intent on "Russian – United Kingdom Partnerships in Higher Education". This expressed the intention to promote co-operation in higher education and to facilitate the creation of partnerships between universities in the two countries. A key aim of these partnerships is to develop dual award programs which would then form the basis for further collaboration. The BRIDGE project was set up to facilitate this.

The Aims of BRIDGE 

  • To develop co-operation between higher education institutions in Russia and England and Northern Ireland.  
  • To encourage co-operation based on mutuality.
  • o support institutions seeking partnerships.
  • To support the development of dual award programs.
  • To support other forms of co-operation at postgraduate level which will build capacity for dual award degrees, e.g. joint short courses for continuation professional development.
  • To increase awareness of the higher education systems in the two nations.
  • To support Russian integration into the Bologna process.
  • To build the basis of future sustainable partnerships between collaborating institutions.
  • To strengthen the skills of higher education staff in the techniques of developing dual awards with another country. 
  • To involve institutions throughout Russia.

BRIDGE provides an opportunity to develop a community of innovators in Russia and the UK and gives them a platform to come together to develop internationally recognizable collaborative courses.
