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.

Different from the european system

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.

ABOUT
Moscow State Institute of International Relations (Russian: Московский государственный институт международных отношений (Университет) МИД России, often abbreviated as MGIMO University, MGIMO (МГИМО)) is an academic institution run by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, which is widely considered the most elite university in Russia.[1] It was dubbed the "Harvard of Russia" by Henry Kissinger, because it educates so many of Russia's political, economic, and intellectual elite.[2] Currently, it has the lowest acceptance rate and the highest test scores of any university in the country.[3] MGIMO is one of the leading Russian universities that offers numerous educational programs in 18 key fields of study, including: international relations, international economic relations, regional studies, international law, political science, public and business administration, journalism, public relations, commerce and transnational business. MGIMO is the only university in the world listed in the Guinness Book of Records – it is named the only educational establishment teaching 53 foreign languages full-time. The University structure comprises two campuses, eight main faculties and three institutes. Each year about 8,000 students from Russia and abroad study at MGIMO University.
