About

Students in the Russian Studies and Classics programme at The University of Edinburgh have the opportunity to study in Russia to improve your language skills and experience Russian culture first hand.

Overview

Russia is the world’s largest country and has the fifth most used language in the world. After a period of political, social and economic transformation, Russia is playing an increasingly bigger role in international politics.

Russian studies at the University will give you a solid understanding of the Russian language and culture. You will study Russian literature, art, music and film and the country’s political history.

Classics is the study of the languages and literatures of the ancient Greeks and Romans. During the Russian Studies and Classics programme at The University of Edinburgh you will explore the highly influential scholarship and literature of the classical world that gave rise to Western society.

Career opportunities

After a period of political, social and economic transformation, Russia is playing an increasingly important role in global politics and, as the world’s largest country, has its fifth most widely spoken language.

Opportunities for Russian-speaking graduates, both at home and abroad, are many, varied and steadily expanding. They include business, journalism, culture, defence, publishing, translation and law.

Russian Studies and Classics graduates will have the intellectual strength and flexibility that so many employers prize in high-level humanities graduates. Your year abroad will be of particular benefit in developing the key skills you’ll need to thrive after graduation.

Having developed enhanced research skills during your time with us, especially in Year 4, you may also choose to continue studying at postgraduate level.
