RUDN University - Virtual Russian Language Summer School

About the Program

RUDN University is offering its Russian Language Summer School in a 6-week online format for Russian language levels from A1 (beginner) through to B2. With RUDN's experienced instructors in small class sizes, students will:

  • practice speaking, reading and writing to gain fluency and confidence
  • discover the secrets of Russian grammar, intonation and etiquette
  • gain conversational practice for social exchanges and understanding native speakers in various contexts 

Classes are conducted remotely through Zoom with time zone considerations for students in the western hemisphere. The TORFL certification exam will not be included in this course since the exam is conducted in person. Students requiring certification have the option to take the in-person exam at the University of Victoria. 

Final program details will be published by the partner institution that manages this program and are generally updated on their program webpage. However, you must apply through Go Global to be considered for this program and ensure you follow the appropriate transfer credit process.

Course Credits

3 UBC credits.

A language placement test is given at the start of the program, and students are placed in the appropriate course level. For this reason, course and year level obtained cannot be guaranteed in advance.

Transfer credits are only granted for courses with academic content and may not be granted for social activities. Please speak to an academic advisor if you have any questions.
