Each student attends intensive classes in English, where the language skills of communication and instruction, the skills of research and the correct application of language in everyday life are actively developed.

Programs have a flexible structure - students have the right to choose their own disciplines, prioritize, determine the most interesting sections of science for themselves. In addition, much attention is paid to the development of career skills - students attend special seminars, where they get acquainted with various topical issues of employment and job search. These classes lay a solid foundation for the future: professionals working with students, professionally and knowledgeably, help develop the necessary qualities.

Successful education is equivalent to undergraduate courses - students, respectively, immediately pass either to the third semester of the first year (at the end of the 2-semester programs), or to the second year of the bachelor's degree (at the end of the 3-semester program) for one of the chosen specialties all undergraduate degrees from the University of Kansas).
