Russian

Year and Campus: 2014
Overview:

Russian language subjects are organised in a progressive sequence (of units) from Russian 1 through to Russian 6. While students taking the major will normally enter at Russian 1, entry and exit points are determined by the student’s background in the language, placement testing, prerequisites, or at the discretion of the Russian program. Students normally progress through the subjects in consecutive order. Mid-year entry is also possible into subjects with even numbers, subject to appropriate prior experience and approval from the head of the Russian program. Accelerated progression is possible on advice from the Russian Program.
