Students working in Germany can get a paid vacation from their employer and study Russian in Kaliningrad without losing money.

For those students who have an employer in Germany there is a possibility to use their legal right to paid leave to attend educational events that are approved or recognised as political education and / or vocational training.

Our 2-week mini-group course is approved by respective administrations in several German states, which means that if your employer is located within any of those states you can get a paid leave to study Russian at us!

Here is the list of the states that recognise our russian course as Bildungsurlaub event:

After receiving your enrollment form with “Bildungsurlaub request” indicated in the notes field, we send special course enrollment confirmation letter to you, where we confirm that the russian course you are applying for is recognised as a Bildungsurlaub event. This confirmation letter is generally enough to get the paid leave from your employer.
