Find out about your options to study Russian at the University of Sheffield.
Teaching in Russian is provided by the School of Languages and Cultures (SLC), and there are a variety of options available to include Russian at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Degree combinations that include Russian are:

- Russian language & culture with one other language & culture
- Russian language & culture with two other languages & cultures
- Russian language & culture with a non-language subject
- Russian languages & culture, a second language & culture, and a non-language subject
If you are studying a non-language degree programme that includes guided module choice, you can also use these to study Russian modules (see below for details).
The School of Languages and Cultures offers a wide range of masters degrees which can include Russian as a language:
A global reputation for research excellence and a thriving research community also makes us the ideal place to pursue a PhD in languages and cultures.
Guided module choice and not-for-credit modules
If you aren't studying a language degree but would still like to experience learning Russian at university, you can do so through Languages for All. Languages for All is a university-wide scheme for all students wishing to develop foreign language skills, either by learning a new language from scratch, or continuing to build on existing language experience.
If you have some experience of modern language learning, you can take Russian language and culture modules either as part of your degree (guided module choice) or alongside your degree (not-for-credit modules) as an extra-curricular activity. Please follow the link below for more information on how this works:
If you are a postgraduate taught student, you can study not-for-credit modules in Russian as an extra-curricular activity in addition to your studies.
Postgraduate research students can study Russian modules on a not-for-credit basis alongside their research. These may be included in your Doctoral Development Programme (DDP) portfolio if relevant to your doctoral research and/or career development.
