Director’s Welcome Message

image004.jpgDEAR FRIENDS,

Thank you for your interest in the Educational Center COSMOPOLITAN and our programs. I am Natalia Bodrova, Director of the Center, and I am happy to introduce you to our company. Whether you are interested in learning Russian or getting the cultural experience, we are dedicated to providing you with the best program options possible.

Our Educational Center offers high quality Russian language and cultural study programs, provides volunteer opportunities, runs summer and winter camps for children and teenagers, organizes tourist programs. We believe that the individual approach and complete language and cultural immersion, that we apply in our school, are the most effective methods of language learning and expanding your knowledge of the local culture. You can expect a warm and friendly atmosphere along with professional service. Our goal is that you have the most enjoyable and worthwhile experience possible during your stay with us.

Siberia has been opening up to the West and offers a range of still unexplored experiences and opportunities. As the cultural, scientific and educational center of Siberia and the third largest city of Russia (after Moscow and St.Petersburg), surrounded by picturesque wooded and field areas, Novosibirsk is an excellent place for immersion in the Russian language and culture, and provides many opportunities to experience the hospitality and cordiality Siberians are famous for.

I am happy to invite you to come to Siberia and get the first-hand experience of our culture. We have attempted to give you as complete a picture of our programs as possible in this website, but if you have additional questions please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Q: How much spending money will I need?

A: Whilst we are at the facility there will be very little opportunity to spend money but you will need some money for gifts and small items and for any treats you may wish to have.

Q: I do not speak any Russian. Will this be a problem?

A: Not at all. Most of our students will speak some English and many are fluent; and it is intended that that classes be conducted in English. Even with absolute beginners it is possible to communicate by means of flash-cards, games and interesting materials. Our Russian teachers are always on hand to help out if you have any difficulty in communication.

Q: Why should I come to Novosibirsk?

Q: What does it mean to "register" my visa?

A: The visa you receive initially is your permission to enter Russia. Once you arrive, you have 72 hours during which to register the visa. Registration is a process that affects all travelers in Russia. If you come on the visa issued with our invitation, this registration process is done by Educational Center “Cosmopolitan”. However, if your visa was received on an invitation from any other organization, you will be responsible for registering your visa upon arrival. We may be able to help you in registering your visa if this case has been discussed prior to your arrival.

Q: How do I organise my Visa?

A: Once you have received your official Invitation from Educational Centre “Cosmopolitan” to attend you will need to apply for a visa at your country’s Russian Consulate. It is possible to do this through a Travel Agent. In the UK we recommend Intourist or Real Russia who are experts at arranging Visas and travel documents for our participants. Contact Alla at Real Russia This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it who will be glad to help. Please note that the official Invitation is NOT the visa itself and it must be submitted to the Russian Consulate for the Visa to be stamped in your passport.
