Important information

The JINR University Centre organises language courses on the territory of the Institute and online. The courses are intended for JINR staff members only and are aimed at improving their work-related foreign language skills.

We offer: English, Russian as a foreign language.

The English language courses start at the beginning of October and finish at the end of May. The Russian language course starts at the beginning of September and finishes at the end of June. 

Typically, classes are held 2 times a week during working hours and last 1.5 hours.

Timetable 2022/2023

English language training, as well as Russian language training, is provided upon a request of the Institute’s departments for work related purposes.

The decision to permit the employees to participate in the course during the working hours shall be made by the Directorate of the Laboratories and must be confirmed by a group Letter of Financial guarantee addressed to the University Centre. 

Groups shall be formed based on the placement test results of the candidates approved by the Laboratories.

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.

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.
