Partner Universities

A key priority of MGIMO international policy is the development of bilateral and multilateral international relations, and the promotion of educational and scientific exchange. Cooperation agreements with more than 170 foreign partners from 57 countries – universities, diplomatic academies, institutes, and research centers – help to ensure the highest global standards in educational and research work.

The University is focused on mutual Bachelor and Master degree educational programs which comply with the Bologna process. In recent years MGIMO has developed dual degree MA programs with universities in France, Italy, Germany and Norway.

Each year exchange programs with foreign universities see more than 100 international students enrolling at MGIMO for a semester or full academic year. Depending on their specialization, international exchange students choose from a variety of courses taught in Russian across different programs. They also regularly take advanced Russian language courses to improve their knowledge.

Exchange programs are a vital part of the MGIMO experience.
