Founded in 1918 by a group of prominent scientists and other community members, Irkutsk State University has since grown to become a major education and research hub for Russia’s Eastern Siberia region.

Today, teaching and research takes place across 19 university faculties split into seven education institutes, three core research institutes and a number of specialist centres. Course subjects offered at the institution are wide ranging, from mathematics and sciences to history and journalism.

Irkutsk State University is large with over 18,000 students enrolled on courses from pre-bachelor diploma to graduate and postgraduate level. There is a small but diverse number of international students, and the university offers a number of business management courses in English.
