Choosing The Right CourseChoose what course you want to take and where you want to take it. Browse all Russian Language Courses and talk to us to get more information about your options.
Apply For Your CourseSend us your completed application form and a copy of your passport. If you intend to travel to other cities while you are in Russia, please clearly indicate this on the form. It takes approximately 6 weeks to process your application and issue a Letter of Invitation. We advise you to apply for your studies 3 months before the intended start date. Students from the EU (except for UK) who plan to take a course for 3 months or less, and who do not wish to extend their visa while in Russia, will receive a Confirmation Letter from their Russian university within 1-2 weeks. T&Cs apply.
VisaReceive the original Letter of Invitation (or Confirmation Letter from the university you applied to) by post. In some cases you will be sent an electronic Letter of Invitation which you will receive by email. Check all the requirements for a Russian student visa on the official Russian Embassy website, specific to your country of citizenship. Gather together all the documents the embassy requires and apply for your visa. We recommend you apply for your visa at least 3 weeks prior to your travel.
