Еxchange students

Exchange students who come from one of our partner universities within an international exchange program receive support from the International Relations Office.

Now almost all economic subjects at our Faculty are taught only in Russian. Student who does not speak Russian or who wants to develop his (her) skills can attend Russian courses.

Additionally (only for our exchange students) we offer some courses in English. The list of courses and their contents are availiable here.

As an exchange student from our partner universities chosen to study at the Faculty of Economics, you are free to put together your own individual schedule for your semester at MSU. The schedule of studying will be able only in the beginning of semester. Please contact your coordinator.

Period of academic semesters:

  • Fall semester - 01 September – 25 January
  • Spring semester - 07 February – 30 June

Application deadline for admission:

  • 1 June for our Fall semester
  • 1 November for our Spring semester

The application documents should be sent to our coordinator Victoria Grishina, e-mail: vbgrishina@econ.msu.ru


We’ll assist you with accommodation in one of the MSU hostels. It costs about 14 000 RUB per month.
