The following are the major 10 steps an international student should take to get enrolled in MISIS’s full-time International Master’s Programs:
After you’ve uploaded the required documents online, you will be contacted by the International Office regarding an online interview with the program admission officers. You will be getting details about the time of the interview and other instructions. Interviews will start on December 1 and will be conducted on a monthly basis until August 1. Once you have taken the interview, the admission decision will be sent to you within 5 working days. If you have passed the interview, you will be receiving a conditional admission letter from the university via email.
MISIS will file a visa application form with the Federal Migration Bureau, which will issue your Visa Invitation Letter within 30 working days. MISIS will then send this Letter of Invitation to your address within 10 days after the approval. After receiving this document, you should schedule an appointment at the Russian Embassy/Consulate in your home country for an interview and your visa will then be issued in due time.
While waiting for the invitation letter: contact the Consulate of the Russian Federation in your country to find out what additional documents are required in order to obtain your Russian visa and make sure you have them ready to submit when the invitation letter arrives.
Your Invitation Letter is valid for 90 days. The expiration dates of the Invitation Letter and those of the entrance visa are the same. You are expected to arrive in Moscow at least a month before the visa is expired and not later than 2 days before the Fall semester start date.
After receiving the visa, send your preliminary itinerary (airline carrier, flight details including ETA and ETD) to an admission officer to arrange your transfer from the airport to your residence in Moscow.
