Participants on the St Petersburg summer program live with Russian families and are provided breakfasts and dinners as part of the homestay arrangement. This offers students ample opportunity to practice their language skills and learn more about Russian culture through daily, interpersonal interactions.
Students on the St Petersburg summer program will also have the opportunity to participate in excursions to areas such as Moscow, Novgorod, Peterhof, and Pavlovsk. Evenings are filled with trips to the theatres, ballets, and operas, including the world-famous Mariinsky Theatre of Ballet and Opera.
