Thank you for choosing our university for your international study experience. It is a great honour and pleasure for the International Students Support to have you with us.

This website is intended to serve as a quick reference whenever you encounter a problem or simply have a question. It will prepare you for life and study in Moscow and answer at least some questions that might arise during the first days of your stay.

We wish you success and many wonderful discoveries!
