As compared to the Russia - Far East Summer School held in previous years, the Summer School of 2018 greatly expands the range of course modules offered to the international students.
Every day the Program of the Russia Far East Summer School starts with a class of the Russian Language and Culture for all students (coded blue), which is followed by the classes of the modules (coded green) that students choose to study individually.
