Trust me, I will become an excellent MsC!

It won't be that hard, as some people say, but you should thoroughly follow our guide to get to the mountaintop.
Do you know that we introduced two more English-taught Master's programmes this year? Have a look at the full list right now! It's worth that! MSc in Global Leadership + (MBA/MPA)and MSc in Strategic Communication + (MBA/MPA).

1. Online Application Request is the best way to let us know you want to be our student. So fill it and submit at first right now below!

2. Start preparing the package of documents to apply for any graduate program:
  • Filled, signed & scanned Application form
  • filled Invitation Application Form
  • A purpose statement of 1000-1200 words in English. Which is your opportunity to tell us about yourself. Why Academy and the Institute? Why did you choose this very programme, not that one? Your ambitions, hopes, life experiences, and inspirations – we want to know you better. Please, take your time on this assignment — it should be logical & narrative. Be open and reflective. Be confident and express yourself openly and honestly. 
  • CV(resume) in any form

3. These documents must be legalized (students need to check which type of legalization should be done before the documents may be translated into Russian: consular legalization or apostille) and translated into the Russian language before your arrival to Moscow*. The translation must be certified/attested by notary. Students must submit the originals upon to the Deans Office upon their arrival to Moscow.
  • Original or scanned copy of your passport will prove your identity and citizenship. 
  • Translation of the 1st page of passport with a notarial attestation
  • University diploma (you must have a state-approved degree or higher education — a Bachelors or Masters degree),
  • University transcript of courses.
  • HIV/AIDS test (original report + translated into Russian)
  • an authenticated medical evaluation with an authenticated translation into Russian (which confirms that you have a good health to attend University abroad);

Translation of the documents

* It is possible to arrange official notarized translation into Russian upon student's arrival to Moscow, but the documents should be provided to the Deans Office before the start of the educational program.
