Work & Study

A new amendment to Russian law permits individuals who have entered the country for educational purposes to work when they have time off between studies. However, students cannot depend on wages earned during their time in Russia to pay for all tuition and accommodation expenses.

No Objection Certificate


If you plan to work during your stay in Russia, it is important to verify your employer credential before your first day of work, paying close attention to all the terms and conditions. You are legally obligated to sign a contract and visit the office of Federal Migration Service for a work permit. A “No Objection Certificate”¬†from the Dean’s office is also required. This must be on KSMU’s letterhead and must state that the university has no objections.

Visit the Visa office of KSMU for questions regarding work permit.
