Russian is used by approximately 300 million people either as a first or second language in the world, not just in Russia and in former Soviet republics. It belongs to the Slavonic branch of the large Indo-European language family, sharing many similar features with other Indo-European languages such as French, German, Greek, Italian to mention but a few.

It is widely used in business, politics, research, cultural fields and of course, it enables you to communicate in large areas of the world where Russian is the main lingua franca just as in Russia itself.

This course is part of the Languages for All programme at Dundee, offering everyone the opportunity to study a language, whether for personal or professional reasons.

Classes are taught in the evening and you can choose from a wide range of languages, many of which are available at different levels.

Benefits of studying with us include use of library facilities with language-specific support material, and the full range of online resources and software available to full time students.

You may be eligible for a Part-Time Free grant from SAAS depending on your circumstances.
