Middlebury Language School Graduate Programs


Additional Requirements for the Kathryn Davis School of Russian Graduate Program

In addition to the general application requirements, applicants to the Arabic Graduate Program must complete the following:

Writing Sample

Please submit a writing sample of approximately two pages, preferably typed, reflecting as much as possible your current writing ability. The sample may be on any topic.

OPI Score (optional)

If you have completed an official OPI, you may send us an official record of your score in support of your application.

Language Assessment

If, after reviewing your application materials, the Director of the Russian School decides to proceed with proficiency testing, you will receive instructions for completing an online grammar test via email. If your score indicates that you may be eligible for admission to the graduate session, you will be contacted to schedule an interview in Russian, which will be conducted by telephone or by Skype.

If the results of your grammar test or interview indicate that you are not yet ready for the graduate program, you will be given the option of switching your application to the 8-week session.

Note: We accept applications for the graduate summer program on a rolling basis, but in order to request materials and help students prepare for the visa process, those applying to the summer program followed by the academic year abroad must submit an application by May 1. Applicants for the year abroad must also have a passport that is valid for at least six months after the end date of the program.

Financial aid for the abroad program is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis for qualified applicants.
