The Independent University of Moscow, the Higher School of Economics, the Moscow Center for Continuous Mathematical Education invite foreign students (undergraduate or graduate students specializing in mathematics and/or computer science) to spend a semester in Moscow in the framework of our MATH in MOSCOW program.

The Moscow school of mathematics is generally regarded as one of the leading ones in the world. Until recent years, the "Iron Curtain" and the language barrier made contacts with Russian mathematicians rather laborious. Today, many of its representatives teach at the best universities of the USA, Canada, and Europe, either occupying full time positions or on a part time basis. You can now gain from the expertise of Moscow mathematicians without learning Russian: all courses in the MATH in MOSCOW program are in English.

The main feature of the Russian tradition of teaching mathematics has always been the development of a creative approach to studying mathematics from the very outset. Not memorizing theorems and proofs, but discovering mathematics yourself under the guidance of an experienced teacher - this is our principle! We emphasize the in-depth understanding of the material rather than its quantity. Even in our treatment of the most traditional subjects, you will find significant connections with contemporary research topics. Indeed, most of our teachers are internationally recognized research mathematicians; all of them have considerable teaching experience in English. We stay in contact with North American universities, so after the appropriate formalities the courses taken in Moscow will be credited by your college for a BS, an MS, or a PhD degree.

Features of the MATH in MOSCOW Program:

  • modern, research-oriented curriculum;
  • highly qualified professors, with sufficient teaching experience in English;
  • comfortable modern university building in Moscow's historic center, with all the necessary facilities (library, e-mail, Internet, copiers, inexpensive cafeteria on the premises);
  • credits transferable to North American universities;
  • small study groups, individual attention to all the students;
  • Russian language learning options;
  • you can take as many courses as you like;
  • modest tuition, low living expenses;
