The First Semester starts in November and includes just a very intensive course of Russian language. It's crucial to learn Russian fast, because the exams are in Russian and on the same level as for Russians. In the Second Semester students start preparing for exams in their major subjects and continue studying Russian.
It seems it will be possible to start the Second Semester in NSU. We are still waiting for some borders to be opened in order to be able to invite students from Iran, China, Saudi Arabia and Marocco.
