Depending on the arrangements with the partner institution, incoming exchange students can either choose a set of 6 courses on their own for 1 semester, or obtain a list of courses agreed in advance with the partner institution, which will be unchanged throughout the exchange period.

For Visiting Individuals                                             

Students who study on a fee basis can choose up to 7 courses per semester. The payment is made according to the agreements between listener and MSSES (or RANEPA) for the entire set of courses in accordance with the one who organizes the specific course. For example, if the student chooses 5 courses, of which 2 are provided by RANEPA, and 3 by MSSES, the student pays for 3 courses to MSSES bank account and for 2 courses to RANEPA account. Online payment option will be opened soon.

 

Courses are divided in the majors, each student can choose courses from any major, organized in a particular semester, but in case of overlays in the schedule (which is known before the arrival of listeners), he/she is invited to replace one of the courses with another one.
