The Middlebury School in Russia offers three distinct opportunities for students to immerse themselves in the study of Russian language and culture.
Alternative Site in Kazakhstan
The School in Russia has suspended its program for the foreseeable future. We are launching a new Russian language program in Kazakhstan and are currently accepting applications for the spring 2023 semester.
Designed for students with an intermediate or advanced level of Russian, our program offers students a broad range of academic and cultural immersion while adhering to the Middlebury Language Pledge®. Depending on academic and extracurricular interests, students can choose from three sites:
Unlike many American programs in Russia that segregate students from regular university and community life, our programs encourage linguistic and cultural integration. Through a flexible and demanding academic program and with a variety of local contacts outside of the university, we strive to allow students maximum independence in their academic and social lives. In addition to improved Russian language ability, this level of independence allows students to develop practical survival skills for later work or study in the country.
Beginner and Intermediate Tracks
We offer Beginner and Intermediate Tracks in Moscow, in addition to our regular program for advanced speakers. Learn more here.
