What will you learn?

This study programme is intended for graduates of bachelor study of the same field. The basic aim of education in Lower Secondary School Teacher Training in Russian is to prepare a fully qualified teacher of Russian with solid knowledge and skills in the field of Russian language and its teaching methodology.

“Discover the Russian language with us!”

By studying the master's degree, the graduate will acquire pedagogical and psychological knowledge that will be used in the practice of primary school teachers. The professional conduct of the graduate will be conditioned by the broader pedagogical and psychological knowledge of educational and pedagogical practices. The study is based on the interdependence of theory and practice.

Teaching in the combined mode of study combines full-time and distance learning, i.e. learning takes place through educational blocks, consultations and individual students' preparation. Part-time study is supported by a number of study materials in electronic format for independent work of students and distance learning.

Practical training

The teaching practice is conceived as a coherent and gradated system with an emphasis on interconnection with theory and reflection and self-reflection of the student as a teacher.

The aim of the teaching practice is to acquire the professional competences necessary in the daily work of the teacher, to become acquainted with the roles which the teacher enters into in their work, to realize their own professional needs and to gradually take responsibility for the planning, implementation and evaluation of lessons. Throughout the teaching practice, students get a real idea of what a teacher's everyday work involves.

The teaching practice forms a coherent system of consecutive subjects. In the follow-up master's programmes, these are the subjects Teaching Practice 1 (1st semester), Teaching Practice 2 (2nd semester) and Teaching Practice 3 (3rd semester). In total, this makes up 280 hours (double-subject programme), followed by Seminar on Teaching Practice. Students enrol in the Seminar on Teaching Practice 1 twice during their studies (in the first and second semesters). The aim of the reflection is to provide students with a space for sharing and reflecting on experiences from their own teaching practice and helping them to deepen their reflective and self-reflective skills.

The system of teaching practice is regularly evaluated both through open and closed questions, both by students and the mentor teachers. The reflective seminars are also evaluated.
