To be admitted to all our courses taught in Russian the first and the most important thing is to know Russian language. You should be able to read, write and speak Russian well. Therefore, you should submit a relevant certificate of Russian language or if you do not speak Russian you have to take any Russian language course and get a relevant certificate, before proceeding to our academic degree courses. It usually takes about 1 year to learn Russian before sending any application for degree courses.

At our University we have also the Russian language course which gives you the possibility to study Russian as a foreign language. This course is just to study Russian language and it doesn’t assume the further automatic admission to our Bachelor or Master programmes.

There is only one intake a year for this course starting from November ending in June.
