Gulnara F. Kalganova, Marina G. Kudryavtseva, Gulnara S. Abdrashitova


The issue of research competences formation as part of professional skills is considered to be of high significance especially while implementing educational standards of the third generation. A strong command of a foreign language and its use as a tool for searching, selecting and processing scientific or specialized information is of great current interest in the context of globalization of information resources as well as the modern labor market modernization. The involvement of students in various research activities connected to foreign language studies contributes to the formation of additional research competencies. In the article, the authors determine the organizational tasks, the types of Students’ Scientific Research (SSR), the pedagogical conditions for the research competencies formation. Moreover, the authors assessed the research skills development within the framework of the SSR.
