The application process is quite straightforward – you should apply directly to your chosen Belarusian institution, including your high school leaving certificate or equivalent, to prove that you’ve completed 12 years of education. If applying for a master’s degree, you’ll need your bachelor’s degree certificate.
The language of instruction at universities in Belarus is usually Russian or Belarussian, but some universities offer English-taught courses. If your course is in Belarussian or Russian and you’re not fluent in either language, you’ll need to take a 10-month language immersion course before starting your studies. These cost US$1,800.
The Belarusian academic year is made up of two semesters, the first one lasting from September to January, the second lasting from February to July. Bachelor’s degrees take four years to complete, while master’s degrees take two years.
