We also focus on educational programs for foreign students, and to resolve specific issues of their stay in Russia: visas, registration, accommodation, travel, diploma validation etc. The office offers the year-long Preparatory Russian Language Program for those who want to improve their Russian proficiency before joining one of the regular programs.
