Greetings from the International Department of Moscow Aviation Institute!
Globalization of education is one of our main objectives. Our university has undergone a lot of positive changes in order to achieve that goal. Since 1992 after a long break MAI has greatly intensified its international activities, and has opened its doors to international students from around the world.
The International Department strives to maintain the international environment at the university, to develop and support our international community, and to provide best services to our international students.
The decision to study abroad may be life changing. It is a great way to get an international degree, to enhance your academic knowledge and skills, and to get the unique experience of living and studying in a new country. We also realize that it may be challenging to experience a new culture and be away from your family and friends. The International Department’s responsibility is to make you feel at home and provide assistance in all aspects of your life and studies in Moscow.
Please do not hesitate to address us with any questions you may have about your studies, accommodation, documents, and social life here.
We also encourage you participate in our vibrant student life and extracurricular activities where you can let your talents and skills shine. Please share with us your talents and accomplishments, and we will do our best to help you develop and apply them.
Let’s keep in touch!
