Moscow State University is a great choice if you’d like to receive fundamental theoretical education with all its advantages and disadvantages. What is more, if you are a foreign student you have a clear set of it’s necessary for the application, lists of examination questions always attached on the site of each faculty. Speaking of the site, it’s one the things that can be improved, in the meaning of digital appearance. In addition, the number of bilateral programs could be improved, due to Russia is not part of Erasmus exchange program, increased number of international agreements will help to improve the quality of education in general.

I am sure that MSU is the best university in Russia, and many programs occupy leading positions in the country. If you decide to get an education in Russia, then this university will be the best option for you. It contains a vast amount of faculties in any field with many detached buildings, libraries and campuses. MSU provides numerous opportunities for its students to improve their studies, create their own projects, possibilities for self-development and also for making sports or even spending their leisure time. However, MSU may not suit everybody's needs. In MSU you will get a fundamental education, a strong basis for your chosen field. But if one plans to get a concrete specialization and the applied knowledge in the field, this may be not quite a proper option. In MSU's Bachelor programs there is a huge amount of theory that not everyone prefers to learn. So if one has an intention to just learn "how to work and do his job" or to simply get a subspecialty, you had better to choose another university. I am finishing my studies at faculty The Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics at MSU. Educational process involves staff of professionals with great expertise in research and practical work. The disadvantage is the not quite satisfactory situation with accommodation at the university. There are also programs at the university that do not provide equally high level of education. Therefore, you need to carefully study the program that you are going to apply for. Thanks.
