Abstract: the article presents the results of a comparative study of the characteristics of the socio-psychological adaptation of foreign and Russian-speaking students in a Russian university, conducted on a sample of 204 respondents. The data obtained are considered in the context of the life-long education paradigm (through the specifics of the implementation of formal, non-formal and informal education). Theoretically, the procedural characteristics of adaptation are considered. A model for studying the success of the process of socio-psychological adaptation is described. In the field of formal education, the following was revealed: satisfaction with the quality of educational services; high attendance rate; reduced level of adaptation to the training group; difficulties in communicating with teachers; the presence of situational (examination) stress and the peculiarities of the influence of educational stress on health. In the field of non-formal education - activity in ex-tracurricular activities. It is shown that foreign students experience the greatest difficulties in the field of informal education, which depends mainly on the person's own efforts. Foreign students are characterized by a predominantly positive emotional attitude and a high level of adaptability.
