Any LMSU student can take part in competitive admission to study abroad for a semester or a year in one of the partner universities of which particularly popular among students are Humboldt University (Germany), Paris-Sorbonne University (France), Peking University (China), La Sapienza University (Italy), University of Barcelona (Spain), and the University of Helsinki (Finland), Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), University of Vienna (Austria), Tokai University (Japan), Stockholm University (Sweden), University of Melbourne (Australia) and many others. The student’s grades and credits for the disciplines studied at the partner university are transferred to his credit record at LMSU. Thus, while studying abroad, students continue to complete the curricula of their educational programs at Moscow University. Students, getting Bachelor’s and Specialist’s degree, can study abroad starting from the 5th semester (3rd year of study); students, getting Master’s degree, can study abroad in the 2nd or 3rd semester.
