About Preparatory Department
ChSPU welcomes international students and the Preparatory Department for international students was established for them in 2015.
As far as the education of international students consists of two stages in Russia, prior to the admission to the universities all international applicants should take a Russian language course. This course includes Conversational Russian and an introductory course of basic subjects delivered in Russian. The course of Conversational Russian is for the Beginners. During the 1st-semester students study Phonetics, Grammar and Conversational Vocabulary.
The Introductory Course is offered for the Pre-Intermediate students who speak Russian but want to improve their language skills and master the language to be able to understand lectures in Russian. The course includes the following subjects: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and some other subjects relevant to their future specialization.
After the Russian language course, international students take entrance exams. If passed successfully, they are admitted to the University.
