This is an intensive programme in Russian language for graduates in other subjects who would find a thorough knowledge of Russian an asset in their chosen field.
The programme caters for those who have no prior knowledge of the language. You will undertake a period of study abroad at a partner institution where Russian is spoken.
This programme is designed as preparation for employment related to Russia or the Russian-speaking countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS); or research activities in history, sociology, politics and economy that deal with Russia and CIS-related themes. Students who intend to work in Russia or need Russian in relation to their work will receive appropriate provision of language in connection with their specific area-based knowledge.
The programme combines classroom and distance tuition in intermediate-level Russian language over two semesters. Students are also ordinarily expected to undertake a designated period of study abroad at a partner institution in the Russian Federation or another country where Russian is spoken.
The programme comprises four discrete elements or blocks, imparting grammar, reading, translation and oral skills
- Classroom teaching at Glasgow
- Interactive activities, exercises and tests placed on the programme Moodle site
- Intensive teaching block at the partner institution abroad in Semester 2
Students who have completed the course have gone into teaching, commerce, financial services, translating, postgraduate study and other occupations.
