Program Description:

Canterbury's programmes in Foreign Languages and Linguistics are ranked first in New Zealand (The NZ Government's Tertiary Education Commission's latest Performance Based Research Fund quality assessment). Studies in the Russian Programme will be of great benefit to students wanting to specialise in a broad number of disciplines: human and social sciences, science and management, law and tourism. Those who study Russian will find themselves well-equipped for positions in diplomatic service, public service, law and accounting, journalism, travel and tourism, as well as the traditional career of teaching.

Please note that international students only pay domestic fees for study at PhD level.
