All international students can attend classes of Russian as a foreign language at all levels during their studies at HSE University for one semester for free. Before the classes, students are required to take an entrance test and get enrolled into courses according to their test results.
Language courses are offered to the whole set of levels – from Beginner to Advanced, along with a wide selection of elective courses. Studying in small groups, students will develop their reading, writing, and speaking skills through a unique combination of academic instruction, conversational practice with native speakers, and the innovative methods in language instruction.
A standard course lasts one semester (two modules): it is comprised of 8-10 academic hours per week and is worth a total of 6 ECTS credits. There is also an option to complete only one module to earn 3 ECTS credits.
Other options are also available on a fee-paying basis.
