Beyond study, MGIMO-Odintsovo students will find themselves drawn to numerous concerts, contests, students research, poetry and language clubs, comedy nights, and events in a wide range of different sports. Various Students-run Initiatives both at MGIMO-Odintsovo and MGIMO-Moscow fill the calendar with additional social events that international students from Odintsovo are always welcome to join.

Social immersion programs are usually designed specifically for international students. These are essentially projects pairing Russian or already established international students with newly arrived students in order to give them a fun and safe introduction to their new life as a student in Russia.

As the Campus is located within just 30 minutes drive from Moscow centre, one of the world’s largest metropolitan cities, the students may enjoy its array of cultural and historical sites, theatres, art galleries, exhibitions and so on. One can also take a suburban train or a bus that will take the passengers to Moscow centre in about 30 minutes as well.


Visit Campus concerts, theatre plays and Public Speaking Contests. Try Russian cuisine, kick a soccer ball in the field and get a glimpse of the life of an ordinary Russian family.
