Minsk State Linguistic University can be considered as one of the biggest
educational institutions in the Republic. As you can understand from its
name, this University deals with languages.
Its faculties are:
English (teachers of English language and literature,
and also as a second language).
Here I should make a note. All faculties which have names of languages
in their names train teachers of these languages. In addition, a student
should choose a second language to study. It's a compulsory discipline
- the second language. Anyway, here are the other faculties:
Faculty of Interpreters (depts. of English, French, German and some rare
languages such as Japanese, Arabic, etc. every two-three years).
Faculty of Western-European Languages (the same as the former; the only
difference is that it was designed for Belarussian students and it's not
free. Education for Belarussians in general is free...)
These are all the faculties. Not much. But here, in this University, you
will find almost all the satellite "dishes" in Minsk, several computer
classes, and a video library (quite huge). Its address is:
Belarus, Minsk, Zaharova str. 31. phone number is +375-17 284 8067. Ask
for Mr. Alexei Tuchinski, who deals with foreign students. He will happily
discuss with you every possibility of studying here. The tuition fee is
$1025 per academic year ($850 for the preliminary year). This includes
dormitory, and a 50% discount on public transportation.
