The Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies is a close-knit community. We teach in small groups so everyone gets the support they need. We’ll help you develop your written and spoken Russian to a good standard – you can start with a beginners course if you don’t have the A Level. Other modules cover the cultural and social history of Russia. Optional subjects include art, literature, East European cinema. The Sheffield University Management School, where you will spend roughly half your time, is triple-accredited (by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS) which puts it among the top one per cent of management schools in the world. It’s also one of the biggest departments in the university, with students from every part of the world, so you can expect a vibrant, multicultural atmosphere. Graduates work for the usual big names such as KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers, and in the public sector. You’ll spend your third year at a university in Russia. A second language, and experience of living and studying in another culture, gives you an edge in the jobs market, particularly if you want an international career. Our graduates are skilled communicators. They go into translating and interpreting, the intelligence services, journalism, publishing and international business.
