Programme Overview

Spoken by over 285 million people across the world, the Russian language provides exciting new opportunities for a determined mind ready to take on new challenges.

This programme will groom you into a new culture; sharpen your tongue to understand and speak a uniquely new language considered official by the United Nations. Being a big player in the global economy, Soviet countries and firms are in direct need of translators and interpreters

Russia has and will remain a powerful force in global politics. Russia is increasingly democratising and this means its businesses and institutions will open up and require people of diverse backgrounds with the requisite knowledge and skills to play important roles in this process. Proficiency in Russian will therefore be opportune.

Students are assessed through a combination of assignments, examinations and projects

At the end of this programme students must;
• Be proficient in writing, speaking and reading Russian.
• Demonstrate deeper insights into Russian culture, history and geography.
• Be able to translate and interpret to and from Russian.
• Be able to understand global politics tracing it from the history of the Soviet communist state into what is now modern day Russia.
