Students Life


These programs offer international students opportunities to use Russian in a wide variety of academic contexts and in everyday life.


Our courses fit for:

• undergraduate and graduate students learning Russian language either as a major or a minor;

• individuals with any type of academic background, interested in learning Russian language for personal goals.


You will develop balanced proficiency in the four major communicative skills - listening, reading, speaking, and writing.


Our Russian Language courses meet the requirements of local and international Universities, so the credits you earn will be recognized as a period of study abroad.


Our classrooms are well-equipped to provide you with a profound knowledge and practical experience. The Russian Language classes are held in lecture-halls, lingaphone cabinets, video- and computer classrooms.
