How To Enrol

Enrolment Periods

Complete beginners should apply in late August 2015, when the timetable is confirmed, for the 2015/16 academic year . No places will be allocated prior to the commencement of the enrolment period. Courses will commence in October.

You can enrol at any time up to the start of term but we recommend early enrolment as many classes will reach capacity and some courses are operating a waiting list.

If you are applying for a Russian course with more than one class at each level, please also email specifying your preferred day of the week.


Enrolment for the 2015/16 academic year will open in late August 2015 once the timetable is confirmed. Please check back then for enrolment forms. If you wish to be added to our mailing list for first notification, please email
