Our educational programs closely attune to those of the participating universities. They are aimed at practical skills and acquiring academic experiences in Russia, as well as general knowledge of Russia itself.
With regards to educational programs, we offer summer and winter programs, courses for extra credit, and post-graduate courses. In agreement with your own university, extra credit can be arranged for almost all programs. The programs are available to non-students too.
Each summer, the Netherlands Institute in Saint Petersburg organizes this interdisciplinary programme. Russia: a First-Hand Experience offers a broad overview of the history and culture of Russia and places Russia in an international context. The most important aspects of Russian culture will be discussed in lectures and excursions. The course provides a solid starting point for follow-up Russian studies or participation in Russian society.
Open to all. Target group: Bachelor/Undergraduate
