Frequently asked questions about Russian language courses with AMBergh Education


Does it matter what standard my Russian is?
No! We organise courses for absolute beginners to those approaching fluency.

What kind of studies make up the course?
As with other language studies, listening, reading, writing and conversation skills are developed. The content of lessons may vary, depending on your level of language proficiency. It is therefore important for you to provide as much information as is relevant on your registration form to enable us to provide the right level of tuition for you.
If you have certain requirements (if, for example, you only want to practice your conversation skills) we recommend that you take individual lessons. It is also possible to combine individual tuition with group lessons.

How will my Russian language skills be assessed?
On arrival at the university/language school you will be given a short test. This is just to enable the teachers to put you in the right group. If you are taking an individual course you can take a test which enables your teacher to organise lessons to suit your needs.

How do I get my visa?
To be able to stay in Russia - and sometimes also in Ukraine - a visa is compulsory.
A visa invitation is included in our offer. This invitation is necessary for you to be able to apply for a visa. In order to arrange for this invitation we must know where you will apply for (and pick up) your visa. We also need a photo copy of your passport information pages. When we have received all information from you, it takes 4-6 weeks before you will get an invitation. It is up to you to find out how long it will then take for the Embassy to process your visa. This handling procedure usually takes up to 2 weeks (speedier handling of visa applications while possible is more costly), which means that we need your registration at least 8 weeks before the start of the course.

How expensive is it to stay in Russia or Ukraine?
It is almost impossible to estimate how much money you will need, because you can either lead a life of luxury or live very cheaply. So, it is up to you how much money you want to spend.
In a student dormitory or in an apartment, no meals are included. Family housing includes breakfast. On campus a hot meal costs a just few dollars.

Will you make travel arrangements to Russia or Ukraine?
The journey is normally your responsibility but we can help you with the booking of tickets. If you want a price quote, please indicate this when you register. However, we do arrange for you to be picked up at the airport or railway station when you arrive and dropped off when you return home after your studies.

What is included in the price of the course package?
General courses include tuition in a group of 2-12 students, 20 lessons per week, invitation (as the basis of your visa application), accommodation, and transfer from airport or railway station.
Individual courses include individual tuition, 10-30 lessons per week (depending on your choice), invitation (as the basis of your visa application), accommodation, and transfer from airport or railway station.

How far in advance do I need to organize my trip and course of studies with AMBergh?
If you want a visa invitation, it will take a minimum of 8 weeks for us to make the necessary arrangements and for you to apply for the visa. If you apply to us later than this then we cannot guarantee that you will get the necessary visa invitation in time.
For best planning of studies and accommodation - please contact us as soon as you can.

When do I need to pay for my course?
You are strongly advised to pay the registration fee as soon as you register your official interest to study in Russia or Ukraine. Reservation of your place on a course and accommodation will take place only after your registration fee has been received. The remaining course fee should be paid no later than 20 days before the course starts. You can apply for a place directly on our website. You can also send an application by fax or mail.

What should I do if I am interested but unsure which course is best for me?
