The aims and objectives of this qualification are to enable students to enhance their linguistic skills and promote and develop their capacity for critical thinking on the basis of their knowledge and understanding of the language, culture and society of Russia and the Russian-speaking world.
Develop control of the language system to convey meaning, using spoken and written skills, including an extended range of vocabulary, for both practical and intellectual purposes as increasingly confident, accurate and independent users of Russian. Develop their ability to interact effectively with users of Russian in speech and in writing, including through online media.
