Direct Enrollment Courses

In the first semester of the Russian Overseas Flagship Program, all students will take one subject-area course or seminar alongside KazNU students. Program staff will help the students identify courses in their areas of current or potential professional interest. Heritage students may also be required to take a direct enrollment course, in addition to other workload, in the spring semester, but this depends on each heritage student's individual schedule and academic needs.

Students may take special (direct enrollment) courses at any KazNU department of their choosing. Students should discuss their direct enrollment options and credit requirements with their home institutions and domestic Flagship directors ahead of the overseas year in Almaty. American Councils will assist students in making contact and identifying appropriate content courses in Almaty.
