As the language of instruction is Russian  we recommend to start your Russian classes at least a year before you apply.  You may go for one-year Russian Language Preparatory Course at the Petrozavodsk State Glazunov Conservatoire.  If you have a good command of Russian and only need additional training before your exam you may take one-month Preparatory Course.

To specify the possibilities of your study at the Petrozavodsk State Glazunov Conservatoire kindly contact the Admission Committee before you officially apply.
