Moscow State University was established in
1755. It is a highly popular university.
Currently, more than 40 000 undergraduates
and about 7 000 postgraduates are studying
there. There are more than 4 000 professors
and lecturers and every year you will find
about 2 000 international students coming to
study there from all over the world.
Many students live in Moscow with their families
but those who come from other parts of Russia
and overseas live in student halls. Life in halls is
fun. Students often socialise with each other -
enjoy a cup of tea or some food together, play
the guitar and sing popular songs. There are also
many student clubs you can join, like the ‘KVN’
where you perform amusing sketches to
entertain your lecturers and fellow students.
Life is not all fun, though! There are plenty of
lectures to attend (which start as early as 7:45
in the morning!) and lots of assignments to
complete - not to forget examinations!
