IRS Rules
During the International Research School, we are guided by a set of rules. The leaders of the delegations participating in the IRS are responsible for the observation of these rules by their group members.
What should one do at the IRS?
Participate in all the activities of the School. The IRS program includes work in project groups and mass events. Coming to the School means participating in both. Each activity is directly related to other ones and affects the overall result. You can get the most complete, vivid and memorable impression of the School only if you participate in all its events and activities.
Come to the scheduled events on time. The IRS lives in a very intense rhythm, and it is very important to stick to this rhythm. Being late, you create inconvenience to other participants and miss a part of the event.
Observe the daily routine. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are held strictly on schedule! We draw attention to the inadmissibility of late arrivals, since they entail inconvenience upon all delegations and project groups.
Communicate in English. English at IRS is not only the working language, but also the one we use in everyday communication. This should be remembered both during your work in the project group and in other situations. For example, if you want to say something to your compatriot, but next to you there is a participant from another country, please, be polite and speak English.
Show careful and respectful attitude to each other, to local traditions and customs, to the culture and traditions of other participants, as well as to the property on the territory of residence and the environment.
Observe the safety rules:
  • Immediately notify your delegation leader of tutor, if you feel unwell.
  • Do not leave the territory of the IRS venue without permission on days when this is not stipulated by the program.
  • Do not leave your group during the excursions and field activities without a permission of the accompanying adult\adults.
  • While on a moving bus, do not stand or walk. Leaning out or putting your hands out of the bus windows is also forbidden.

  1. To be outside your room and make noise in the dormitory after 23.00.
