The article deals with the issues of interaction and mutual influence of Soviet and foreign students who studied in educational institutions of the Soviet Union on the example of the Sverdlovsk region. It is established that representatives of foreign countries began to come to study in the USSR since 1946. The basis for communication between representatives of different countries and with residents of the Soviet Union was the Russian language. However, the analysis of various sources showed that not always knowledge of the Russian language was sufficient. It was revealed that mostly foreign students took a responsible approach to the educational process, but there were exceptions. In everyday terms, there was undoubtedly a meeting of different cultures, which voluntarily or involuntarily had to get along. All foreign students were provided with a hostel. For better adaptation, some of them were placed in rooms together with Soviet students. This contributed to the mutual expansion of horizons, but could create difficulties due to different norms of behavior, different gastronomic preferences. The student years spent in Soviet universities left warm memories for many foreigners. After graduation, the graduates kept in touch with their teachers and formed associations. This practice continues at the present time.
