Study and group trips

Every year, study and student clubs pay Russia a visit. The NIP helps them organise their trip.

For students of the participating universities the NIP arranges:

  • letters of invitation for visas
  • advice on accommodation
  • meetings with universities and companies
  • lectures at the institute itself
  • other practical information and facilities (at additional cost for services such as an interpreter, transport etc.)

As we provide study groups with a humanitarian visa on scientific basis, we ask the study groups to send us a scanned official letter with the following information: 

  • The period of stay in Russia
  • The name of the study group/association, which faculty/faculties
  • The number of participants
  • The fact that it is a study related visit
  • Contact information for us (phone numbers of the contact persons)
  • Draft itinerary as an attachment
  • Signed by the chairman of the association

Furthermore, we ask for a recommendation letter from the university.
