Personal recommendation
It is not a university to have fun. You'll have to study A LOT. Six days a week, a lot of homework and big assignments.

Overall
After completing one year in MGIMO, in the School of International Relations and Affairs, I can sum up my experience and thought with one word: different, different from the european (french) educational system I am used to. Unlike in european universities, my faculty offers a wide range of subjects, a good amount of them having not much to do with my specialization, which can be both good (I have discovered a passion for marketing) and bad (if I have chosen to study social sciences, it is not because I like algebra). The most difficult thing to embrace for me stays the mentality of the people and atmosphere that this university is overwhelmed with.

Pros
A very international faculty
Cons
Give us the right to choose any language we like out of the vast choice they have, instead of imposing it

Course recommendations
Actually in Russia students do not get to choose their own courses, the schedule is already made for them, most courses are compulsory. Only foreign languages are optional.
