NUST MISIS comprises 10 colleges and 6 branches. About 20,000 students study at NUST MISIS on different levels of education. More than 26 percent of NUST MISIS undergraduate and graduate students come to study in Moscow from abroad.

The university offers 11 English-medium MSc (S.T.E.M.) programs, two of which are internationally accredited to ASIIN: Multicomponent nanostructured coatings, Nanofilms and Quantum physics for advanced materials engineering. A list of Master programs available in Russian is here.

Please note that our Bachelor and most PhD programs are taught in Russian. So in order to take courses at the Bachelor’s level, you need to take a preparatory course in Russian and then continue your studying in Russian. More information about the preparatory course and how to apply is here.

However, this year NUST MISIS launched English-taught postgraduate programmes in two areas: “Physics and Astronomy” and “Materials Technology”.

NUST MISIS offers stipends for international students entering English-medium MSc (S.T.E.M.) Programs who are getting admitted via the prestigious Russian Governmental Scholarship program (https://russia.study/en) and those students who cover their tuition out of their own funds.
