A student studying abroad with Middlebury Schools Abroad: Middlebury in Yaroslavl
My favourite part about studying abroad were the different perspectives I got access to. I was able to speak with many Russians, and see how they live their lives and what they think about the world--I think it has made me a more open person! - Wellesley College View Entire Review

About

Yaroslavl has an unmistakable feeling of tradition and history, and its Kremlin walls give this city of 650,000 residents the feel of a small town. Onion-domed churches are at the end of seemingly every street, and its historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Russia’s first pro­fessional theater company was founded here, and its school of icon and fresco painting competed with the Novgorod and Pskov schools.

Yaroslavl’s vibrant social life gives it a youthful, energetic feel that blends well with its traditional customs. Founded in 1908, Yaroslavl State Pedagogical University (YGPU) is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in Russia. In addition to twelve regular departments, the university maintains an institute of teacher training, a center for Russian language testing of foreign students, an astronomy society, university museum and botanical gardens.

The School in Russia program at YGPU is coordinated through the Department of International Relations. Instructors at the School in Russia program come from филологический факультет of the Yaroslavl State Pedagogical University, as well from other institutions of higher education in the city.
