Attention! Submitting an application form does not guarantee enrollment in a course. The decision on your enrollment is made by the head of your department and the University Centre. An applicant is considered to be enrolled in a course only after they receive a confirmation by e-mail followed by the applicant’s further submission of a Letter of Financial Guarantee issued by the applicant’s laboratory or department within the period up to September 23.

The number of vacancies in a group is limited (not more than 12 persons).

The number of groups is also limited.

Studies at the UC language courses are paid by the JINR laboratories and departments sending their staff members to take a course. Other forms of payment are not possible. Only those JINR staff-members who have submitted a Letter of Financial Guarantee to the University Centre within the indicated period can attend the course they applied for and were approved.

A Letter of Financial Guarantee is not only a confirmation of payment obligations but also the permission of the directorate of a laboratory or department for a staff member to be absent from work in order to attend a course during the working hours.

Letters of Financial Guarantee for the Russian language course must be issued separately.
