Academic activities in any Russian university starts between 1st September and end of February each year. Students that will be studying in English language are expected to have arrived and completed all necessary registration documentation in time.

Lectures in any Russian University are offered in either English language or native Russian for Russian nationals, the native language is mandatory. Foreign students have a choice of either the native language or English language. However, although most courses are offered in English language, there are still some that are not available in English. In these circumstances, the foreign language student will undergo a one-year language programme. A separate certificate of proficiency in the language is awarded to the student upon graduation.

Foreign students studying in any Russian university, will fall under one of the following three study programmes

Most undergraduate programmes run for a period of four (2-4) academic years. Medical courses are however, an exception. Students have a choice of continuing to a master’s degree after the completion of the undergraduate programme. The duration of the master degree course will depend on the student’s grades in the undergraduate programme.

Postgraduate programme is based on completed undergraduate programme. Students of the same university almost always have an automatic offer of postgraduate continuation, depending on their academic performance. For transfer students they will have to provide authenticated evidence of a completed undergraduate programme, including their undergraduate project work, result transcript and certificate.
