Preparatory faculty of The Moscow State Mining University

MSMU runs preparation courses on any specialty on the preparatory faculty.

Unique methods of Russian language teaching enable foreign students from different countries quickly learn language: not only spoken language but reading and writing skills as well. Students with different

Native languages learn Russian together in international classes.

Highly qualified teachers supervise process of study at every stage. One may ask how to reach high language proficiency which enables a foreign student to study further on basic courses without any difficulties in Russian language comprehension. The methods include Russian language classes combining with general subjects such as mathematics, physics, engineering drawing (for technical specialties) chemistry and biology (for medical specialties).)

Foreign students are focused on specific vocabulary and improve knowledge obtained in secondary schools in their home countries. Russian educational system is famous for excellence in education, especially in fundamental and natural sciences, such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology. Nowhere else a foreign student is given an opportunity to obtain knowledge in these fields which are necessary for future academic success.

Gradually with enriching of vocabulary a foreign student starts learning subjects of basic courses. Upon completion of preparatory faculty course a foreign student passes graduation test of Russian language and his admission to basic courses of the chosen university is arranged. Those who want to continue studies on Bachelor or Master degree programs at MSMU are granted admission to the University.
