Pedagogical enculturation is an inevitable aspect of socialization encountered by foreign students. This study tries to explore: 1) identity of Russian students who study at UIN Malang, 2) formation process of their new identities and 3) supporting and restricting factors in the learning process in the university. These objectives will be answered using in-depth interview, direct observation and documentation for this study is qualitative in nature. In analyzing the data, researchers use the cultural identity of Stuart Hall (1996) on the concept of identity as being and becoming. The findings of this study show that the general characteristic of Russian students does not see any internal clash of being Russian and Muslim. They are even able to combine these two characteristics into a single (hybrid) identity i.e. Muslim Russian. The Sufi characteristics to some degree have also influenced their characteristic particularly in establishing friendship. Relating with the educational characteristic (identity), Russian students are often ordered by teachers to express their learning engagement in writing. Moreover, (verbal) presentation in front of the class is considered something new and challenging. Russian student used assimilation process in the culturasation process. The assimilation process is seemingly opted as an effective way to live well within Indonesian community. But in fact, he still thinks about his privacy, his own business and therefore apparently, he seems to be difficult to give a clear and deep explanation about his formation of new identities. The exclusive feeling and superiority attitude are also existed as he claims that the quality of education in Russia at present is better than Indonesia. He even goes further to not suggest the other Russian to study in this University.
