On the basis of JINR, physicists are trained for many renowned Russian institutions of higher education in the following specialties: Nuclear Physics, Elementary Particle Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, Theoretical Physics, Technical Physics, and Radiobiology. The UC works out and coordinates a unified study process for the JINR-based departments with the aim of training highly skilled staff for JINR and its Member States. To provide this, the UC involves JINR's leading specialists as faculty members and helps to organize the research work of the graduates at the Institute's teams. The JINR-based departments' curricula are added with special optional courses reflecting the research fields of the Institute as a basic research centre. The UC also preforms specialized training of JINR Member States' students.
