The Independent University of Moscow
, the Higher School of Economics
, and 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. Moscow is one of the largest cities of the world with more than 9 million people and is the cultural, economic and political center of Russia .
You will study at the Independent University of Moscow (IUM). IUM is the university where the best Russian amd world mathematicians are teaching students, using their own technique and methods of learning maths and computer science. The best students of Mechanics and Mathematics Department of Moscow State University consider it an honor to study simultaneously at the IUM. They are attracted by the opportunity to enhance their knowledge beyond their college curriculum, participating in informal discussions of contemporary mathematics and ability to work closely with faculty. The IUM is located in a cosy building in the very heart of Moscow, and among lecture halls and classes, the IUM building has a library, a computer class, a cafeteria, a small publishing house, and a book shop for math books.
Classes are small, giving teachers the opportunity of an individual approach to every student. Mathematics courses are taught with emphasis on problem solving rather than memorizing theory: this emphasis is characteristic of the Moscow school of mathematics. Besides math and computer science courses, a Russian language course, courses in Russian history, history of science and Russian literature (in English) are offered. Full Course Details
