Integrated year abroad Russian MA (Hons) 2020 entry
It is possible for students applying for the MA (Hons) in Russian to study abroad in a Russian-speaking country between their second and third year of study. This adds an extra year to the MA (Hons) course, making it a total of five years in length.
Students who spend a year abroad develop their linguistic skills, intercultural competence, and self-confidence.
There are no teaching assistantships or other work placements available for students choosing the integrated year abroad programme in Russia. Instead, students spend their year in Russia on study placements on academic programmes in various institutions of higher education in the Russian Federation.
It is possible either to spend a full year abroad studying in Russia or, for students studying multiple languages, to split the year abroad between a semester studying in Russia and a semester on an industrial work placement in France, Germany, Italy or Spain.
Places are granted on merit during the second year of study and do not take into account the initial UCAS application. If students are unsuccessful with their year abroad application, they will be moved to the four-year Russian MA single Honours degree programme.
