About program

Lobachevsky University is launching a new project for international students "PREUNI online": teaching Russian as a foreign language and general education disciplines in a distant format. You can complete a pre-university training program without leaving your home before coming to Russia anywhere in the world.

The main feature of this intensive educational program is the organization of daily synchronous classes, when students from any country in the world, are learning with a teacher "live" in real time. In other words, students are in a virtual classroom in an absolutely real lesson, which certainly makes the educational process as effective as possible. Synchronous classes are complemented by students’ independent work with interactive teaching materials in the UNN e-learning system.

You will come to Russia already in possession with the Russian language, which will make your stay and study in Russia much more comfortable!

Program description

How the classes are organized?
Each student will have an individual educational trajectory.

It is designed, taking into account students' needs (starting level of proficiency in Russian as a foreign language, beginning / ending dates of training, etc.).

The program provides for various forms of work with the teacher: synchronous classes in the format of videoconferences, and individual consultations with teachers.

Each student is given the opportunity to practice speaking with a native Russian speaker online.

During the entire program, each student is supported by a tutor in any technical or organizational issue.

The basic program consists of 7 modules:

  • 3 modules of Russian as a foreign language (from zero level to B2)
  • 3 modules in general education subjects
  • a module of professional Russian in the chosen speciality

General education subjects are chosen from 8 modules depending on the focus of the program: humanitarian, economic, biomedical, engineering/technological, natural science.
There are exams at the end of each module.

If exams are successfully completed, the student receives a certificate.

All distant educational materials are interactive, students immediately see their results thanks to the possibility of automatic self-testing.

The program provides training in groups of up to 15 people.
