ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS TO STUDY IN RUSSIA
The majority of courses at Russian universities are taught in Russian. So if you plan to study in Russia, it’s likely that you’ll need to master the language first, and provide proof of language proficiency as part of your application.
If you don’t feel confident with your Russian language skills just yet, some Russian universities offer one-year preparatory courses for international students, designed to help you to get up to the required standard quickly. For those who have only a very limited knowledge of Russian, there’s also the option to undertake a program taught in the English language, which are offered at some Russian universities. Although some English-taught options do exist at undergraduate level, English-language master’s programs are much more common.
Depending on the university and your academic background, Russian university requirements may also include an entrance exam and/or an interview. The Russian academic year runs from September to June, split into two semesters.
