Faculty of Philology

"Choose the Russian language and bring Russia closer to us"


Basic academic studies of Russian language and literature aim at acquiring theoretical knowledge and mastering practical skills in the field of Russian language, Russian literature and culture. A further goal of these studies is to place the Russian disciplines in a broader Slavic context, in order to gain a broader insight into Slavic studies in general, as well as to connect that three (language, literature, culture) with the national culture. These studies should enable students to have a comprehensive view of the Russian profession and create a basis for further work in science and the application of its results in practice.
With the way it conducts the Bologna process, with its overall commitment and constant work on improving the quality of higher education, hard-working students and dedicated teaching staff, "Apeiron" has become a desirable partner for cooperation with prestigious universities in Russia, China and neighboring countries.
Considering that it has been intensively advocating for the spread of the Russian language for 10 years, through the Faculty of Philological Sciences, in a short period of time Apeiron University became a signatory of the cooperation agreement with Moscow State Regional University, Lipetsk State University and Tambov State University. According to these agreements, the students of the signatory university study for the first three years at their home university, and the fourth at the "partner" university. The result is a double degree - a diploma from the Pan-European University and one of the mentioned universities.
Students of the Faculty of Philological Sciences are already living and studying in Russia. At the famous Moscow State University "MVLomonosov", with which "Apeiron" also cooperates, students of philology learn Russian, get to know Russian culture, but also actively participate in international scientific conferences and exhibit their works in front of a foreign academic audience. So far, 40 students have gone to Russia to continue their education at all the mentioned universities. The Faculty of Philology of the Pan-European University with the Siberian School of Corporate Governance from Omsk organized an international scientific-professional conference in December 2016, and in March 2017 it continues to gather scientists around the world through a conference organized with the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow. "Apeiron", together with the Moscow State University "MVLomonosov", also organized a scientific conference dedicated to the Russian language.


Second cycle studies are individual studies, designed according to the student's needs, which are performed through a system of personal mentoring, conducting instructive and consultative classes and exercises, and organizing students' scientific research projects. In the study program Russian language - 60 ECTS studies of the second cycle are organized for one year, as two-semester studies, which are evaluated with a minimum of 60 ECTS credits (for students who have completed a four-year level of the first cycle with an entry level of 240 ECTS credit points), so that in total with the first cycle, the total accumulated credit points, after completing the second cycle, amount to 300 ECTS points. The University conducts second cycle studies as a combination of interactive teaching dialogue system with student mentoring.
