Open Day at MGIMO’s Gorchakov Lyceum

16 March 2019

March 16th, MGIMO’s Lyceum organized an Open Day for potential applicants and their parents to discover the specificities of this school.

The visitors were taken around MGIMO’s Odintsovo campus and marvelled at the modern infrastructure and the large sports complex. They met with the Director of the Lyceum, with teachers and students attending the school, who shared their impressions on the educational process.

The Director of the Gorchakov Lyceum Roman Kotov opened the event with a speech on how the lyceum was created, its special ties with MGIMO and its personalized approach to education, enabling each student to meet his goals. The director also described the early professionalization program implemented in the school, which enables students to visit international organizations, meet with diplomats and interact with students from other leading Russian schools.

The teachers talked about the Lyceum’s program, which specifically prepares students for MGIMO’s entrance exams and revealed the admissions results of the last few years (90% were successful in 2017 and 82% in 2018). They also spoke about the different competitions students are encouraged to participate in.
