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.

Personal comments
Mostly the assesement is through oral exams. So you should be prepared for all kind of questions! The important thing is to show the professor that you are interesting. Sometimes it gets too personal, but that is their way.

A very nice on campus hotel-like residence. A room for two people with a bathroom. One kitchet for the entire floor. The room provided students with all the necessary furniture. No equipement.

Different from the european system

International Relations
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

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.

Final comments
I really recomend living on campus. You'll get to meet different people who can really help you with studies. You can easily borrow notes and books. And another thing try not to mess up your relationship with professors, they note you by their personnal judgement.
