The University of Leeds has a long Russian Studies tradition; our area was founded in 1918. Whilst mindful of this tradition, we are pioneering a dynamic, 21st century approach to the subject, with a multi-media, cross-disciplinary teaching approach, led by our staff's latest research. Russian and Slavonic Studies are part of the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies at Leeds.
The student-led Russian and Slavonic Society is open to all students studying or interested in Russian and Slavonic languages and culture. The society organises events to enhance the learning experience of members with activities including a film club, social events, a student magazine, networking groups and a Year Abroad blog which help to create an intimate and friendly atmosphere among students and staff.
Events often take place in the German and Russian foyer in the School, including a weekly social gathering, 'U Samovara', with free coffee and cake. Find out more about the society here.
