Abstract The paper explores new approaches in the area of training graduate students who take double degree international programs in Russia and Kazakhstan. Results of “Theory and Practice of Achieving Excellence in Sport” project are presented. This project was aimed at developing disciplines based on contemporary theoretical approaches and scientific achievements in sports psychology and also practical knowledge, making it possible to quickly involve graduate students in academic activity. The concept of excellence, which was initially manifested in sports and then in other areas (business, education, healthcare), was selected as the project’s methodology basis. The following research methods were used: systemic, comparative and contrastive analysis of philosophical, psychological, pedagogical, method and medical literature, studying psychological and pedagogical design experience; observation methods (direct and indirect observation); archival research (analyzing the results of pilot and experimental activity, content analysis). The developed project is united by a shared idea and includes 4 disciplines. The paper outlines each discipline’s tasks, features of its content and forecasted results in developing students’ competence. Results of practical activity proved students’ interest in new disciplines and enhanced motivation to select subjects for their Master’s Theses relevant for contemporary research areas. The main output of working on this course is building a new generation of students ready for academic exchange, self-development and professional achievements.
