TORFL is the system of language proficiency evaluation supervised by The Ministry of Education and Science of Russian Federation.

Preparatory department

This is a one year program designed to prepare foreign citizens for entering Russian Universities. We teach students from China, Iraq, Tunisia, Ethiopia and other countries. 


The program provides an intensive course of Russian for beginners and lessons on grammar, vocabulary and style needed for further education in a chosen specialty. Preparatory classes on various subjects (Economics, Geography, Physics, Mathematics, etc.) are given to students by the lecturers of PSTU in the second term. 


At the end of the academic year students are able to communicate in Russian and are ready to understand lectures in Russian.


Graduates of the preparatory department receive certificates required for entering PSTU or other Russian Universities.




They are intensive programs for students of different levels and different nationalities, both group and individual, for different periods of stay. We use the most up-to-date communicative methods in order to develop necessary skills and adequate speech reactions in different speech situations. 

Changing the basic program is possible and sometimes even necessary. Speaking and grammar material can vary to meet your personal requirements.
