We would like to inform you that invitation for obtaining a student visa for non-degree programs will be prepared only after the tuition fee prepayment is made by the student (full prepayment for 1-semester programs, prepayment for 1 semester for 1-year and 1,5-year programs).


Application submission deadlines are dictated by standard invitation and visa processing timeframes. Currently, the deadline stands at two months before program start date for all programs:

August 31st – for the Pre-university training (1 academic year: September – June)

December 1st – for the Pre-university training (1,5 academic year: February of present academic year – June of next academic year)

The invitation and visa processing times are shorter for citizens of countries which have agreements on simplification of visa procedures with the Russian Federation.

NOTE: After finishing the preparatory course of Russian language, you will have to take entrance exams in order to become a student of Kazan Federal University. The exams are mandatory for all applicants, whether they studied at the preparatory school at KFU or any other university.
