Why Study Russian?
If you want to understand and be part of vibrant and diverse culture, learn Russian!
More than 260 million people around the world speak it, and it is the official language of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.
It is also an official language of the European Council, The United Nations, UNESCO and the World Trade Organization.
For work in tourism, diplomacy and science, it is increasingly important.
And don’t forget the wonderful literature!

Academic Modules

The modules in this programme may be taken for credit as part of your degree study or as a standalone module (for a separate fee). They are also open to postgraduate students and university staff. We offer a range of levels, depending on the language, as well as accelerated options for those who wish to develop their language skills at a faster pace.

Most of our modules are year-long and can therefore be taken for 24 or 30 CATS (determined by your home department).

Lifelong Learning Courses

Unfortunately, at this time we do not offer Lifelong Learning courses in Russian.
