All classes are online and last two hours and commence at 6.30pm.

We are running two new classes: Upper Level 3 Conversation and Grammar, this class will be on Wednesdays from 4pm to 6pm. Upper Level 3 Reading and Vocabulary, this class will be on a Friday from 4pm to 6pm, these classes will be online and on Zoom. The teacher for this class has been teaching Russian online extensively since March 2020 and all course materials are designed especially for the online environment.

Please note that due to high demand, we run multiple groups for a number of levels. If you are applying online, please also email eveningcourses@ucl.ac.uk specifying your preferred day. If you are applying by form, please specify your preference somewhere on your form or email. If you do not, we will allocate you to a group at random. All enrolments operate on a first come first served basis until capacity is reached.

If you are a new student applying to join at a level above Beginners, please see the How To Enrol page for details on the Russian assessment process.

Please note these are 30-week courses split into three 10-week terms. New students with sufficient knowledge of the language can enrol for lessons 11-20 and/or 21-30, but complete beginners must start in October.
