Can I take part if I have no prior knowledge of Russian?
Yes, absolutely. Russian-learning groups are formed according to the students' level. If you are a complete beginner you'll be placed in the group with other beginners.
How can I get Russian visa?
After you pay 40% of the Contract fee (via bank or e-transfer), we will prepare and send you an invitation with which you can apply for Russian visa at one of the Russian consulates in your country. Please, pay attention that in some cases (depending on your country of residence) the university cannot issue an invitation but has to apply to Russian Migration Authorities on your behalf. In such cases issuing Invitation involves extra costs (about 14 euros) and takes 20 working days.
Where will I stay in Izhevsk?

We do not tie you two a single option. You can stay either in the uni dorms or in one of the city hotels / hostels. We will provide you with a list of recommended accommodation options.

When should I arrive in Izhevsk?

We advise that you come 1-2 days before the course start date, e.g. 6th or 7th August.

How long can I stay in Russia?
We normally provide our summer school students with 2 extra weeks for travelling Russia.
How much will the programme cost me?
The Contract amount is 230 euros. This is the academic programme fee. You pay 40% before you come to us, and 60% upon arrival.
Cultural programme is about 25 euros. You pay as you take part in the events.
Accommodation prices range from 8 (uni dorms) to 45 euros (hotel) per person per day. The options we recommend start from 12 euros/night.
A meal in a cafe costs around 2.5 euro on average.
Can I pay with my bank card in Russia?
Visa and Master cards are widely accepted in stores, different facilities and even public transport in Russia. Make sure with your bank that your card is not blocked when you cross Russian border. Anyway, we advise to exchange some currency into rubles beforehand and always have some cash on you while in Russia.
How can I get to Izhevsk from Moscow?
By plane(2 hr.) or by train(17 hr.).
Does the university offer pick-up service?
No, but we can assign you a personal “buddy” (=UdSU student volunteer) who will meet you at the airport / railway station and take you to your accommodation.
