Business Internship Programs in Moscow:
The UA Russian Abroad Business Internship programs in Moscow allow students to study Russian for the purpose of basic communication and to utilize this knowledge directly on the job. Internships are especially suited to students with higher Russian language ability. While there are internships for beginning Russian students, the better companies are looking for students who already have intermediate Russian skills. Russian language instruction is typically taken simultaneously during the internship period. The language programs serve students on all levels.

Housing in Moscow:
Participants in the Moscow programs may choose to live in dormitory housing on the beautiful campus of the GRINT Language Center of the Moscow Academy of the Humanities and Social Sciences (the "Academy") or in a home stay located close to the Academy. Foreign students live in a sector of eight dormitory rooms that have their own baths, kitchen, laundry, etc. A typical room contains two beds, study tables, end tables, and wardrobes or built-in closets. Each sector has its own anteroom with television and telephone. There is security at the entrance to the Academy. All persons entering the area must display a student pass issued by the Academy. Two meals per day are included in the program (M-F).

The home stay provides a private room for each student in a typical Moscow family, anything from families with children to grandmothers alone, where the friendly atmosphere allows our students to use their Russian in a relaxed and natural way. All facilities provide cooking, bedding, television, telephone access.  Breakfast and dinner are provided Monday-Friday. This is the most popular form of accommodation and offers opportunity to practice and improve language skills. Families typically live close to the campus.

Housing in St. Petersburg:

Families typically live closer to the Smolny Institute, where classes are held.
