Lomonosov Moscow State University is the biggest and most respected University of the ex-USSR, current Russia and the CIS. Due to historical reasons, since its foundation in 1755, we have offered numerous higher education programs only in Russian language. The University still dominates “The World of the Russian Language”, and although many international students have graduated from LMSU, all of them have had to study Russian to be able to study Math, Geology, Physics and Chemistry, and Biology. Although Russian language is beautiful and intertesting, we doubt that it would be reasonable for someone to study it only to be able to study at least Biology. Hence we decided to launch some Master programs in English to ensure those who are interested in getting top University education in this field in Moscow do not feel discriminated.
This website is about Master programs, summer/winterschools and other options for English-speakers that Lomonosov MSU Faculty of Biology offers.
While we will not produce big number of various programs, as we do not want to spoil quality with quantity at all, we intend to make the scope of the programs wide. We would like you to be able to choose between Ecology and Nanobiotechnology, and between complete two-year Master and a brief but fascinating short schools and workshops. Some programs are developed in cooperation with our international partners.
