Intensive Russian Language tuition for MSc students
MSc students have a unique opportunity to learn Russian language as part of their MSc in REES degree. Classes are designed, organised and taught by Dr Anna Pleshakova and cater for students starting from complete beginner through to advanced level. No previous knowledge of Russian is required to join at beginner level. Whilst classes are optional for the MSc students, many find the acquisition of Russian language gives them the leading edge over their competitors when applying for jobs.
What students say…

‘Great interactive materials, which are interesting and useful at the same time’. Intermediate 2011-12
'I think these lessons are a wonderful addition to the course. By providing a mixture of conversational and social science Russian, they cater to a variety of purposes and are an excellent refresher course or building block for further study'. Beginner 2012-13
‘This was more than simply a Russian language course- it was an amazing, very enjoyable discussion of Russia's culture, politics and history.’ Advanced 2011-12
'I decided to take up the Russian course because I was interested in Politics, International Relations and Security Studies, I expect the knowledge of a new language to be helpful in conducting research in Russian. Moreover, knowledge of a second UN language will be an advantage for me. Both the active and the passive language tuition are really good and fit the needs of students.' Beginner 2012-13
