Kyiv: Russian as a Second Language

Study Abroad

In Kyiv, an intensive and supportive environment for Russian or Ukrainian language study is paired with home stay to provide you with an immersive language and cultural experience. Whichever language you choose to study, out-of-classroom experiences and special lectures and workshops introduce you to local Ukrainian identity, history, and current issues in contemporary Ukraine. Kyiv is a very affordable option for study abroad, due to the many inclusions in this program (2 meals/day, subway transport card) and the generally low cost of living.

Note that this course is based off SRAS' Russian as a Second Language programs, but part or all of your language study while in Kyiv may be replaced with Ukrainian.

Spring 2021/Covid-19 Update: to allow for maximum flexibility, deadlines have been moved to November 1 and deposits will be fully refundable up until it is necessary to process visas – approximately 3-4 weeks prior to arrival. We do encourage applying before the November 1 deadline so that you receive our updates. Those looking to hit the ground running will want to look at our online courses, which will also earn you SRAS Learning Credit for your future study abroad experiece.
