It is recommended that the passport be renewed before a trip to Russia for the full period of study.
Students at Russian universities are required to attend all lectures as only the knowledge gained during classroom instruction enables one to become a skilled and knowledgeable professional. This means that side job opportunities are limited to working after classes, on weekends, or during vacations. However, even that should probably be reserved for when you have gotten to know the country and the language better. Usually, it is during the junior year that getting a job really becomes an option, but only if you study well and attend all mandatory classes.
Between the semesters, the students are on vacations. The brief winter break lasts two weeks, from Jan. 25 to Feb. 9, and the summer vacations are two months long, from July 1 to Aug. 30. During that time, some students stay in Russia, while others go back home to spend time with their families.
