According to a new amendment in a Russian law, individuals entering the country for educational purposes may work here during time off from studies. Thus, students cannot count on working to cover all tuition and accommodation expenses incurred during their stay in Russia.
It is important to see and verify your employer credential before you begin to work in a company. Sort out all the terms and conditions before you begin to work. In order to get employed legally, you should sign a contract and visit the office of Federal Migration Service for the work permit. You will also need a «No Objection Certificate» from the Dean’s office on KSMU’s letterhead stating that university has objections for you to work.
More information on work permit can be obtained at the Visa office of KSMU.
