We have implemented an advanced student quality rating system, allowing each Minin student to start forming their portfolio —  a summary comprising all the achievements obtained during the study —  already from the first year. Given the high level of academic training, deep involvement of students in pedagogical and practical training, we allow graduates to come into a great demand in the labour market. 

We highly appreciate and support our students in need: a developed system of social sustenance for students includes classic and personal scholarships, grants and incentive payments. Studying at Minin University is not only interesting, but also profitable!
