Overall
Personal recommendation
You should know Russian at an adequate level, you should be prepared for extreme bureaucracy, long winters and sometimes unfriendly people! But you can expect having a great time of your life if you cope with the characteristics of this special country!

Great theoretical knowledge, but lack of practical skills

4.0/5
Overall
The university is considered to be the most desirable and recognised place to study in Russia. 

The theoretical knowledge I have received is massive, which on the other hand, was not supported by decent amount of practical tasks. I got impression that the purpose of the studies were to raise a new generation of theoretically skilled persons who would eventually get PhD in sociology and build their careers in teaching.

The good thing about being a student there is that everyone has loads of opportunities for non-class activities, as to sports, volunteering, arts, workshops.

The university is orientated on technical disciplines.
