Steps to Enroll

Dear Prospective Students!

The following are the major 10 steps an international candidate should take to get enrolled to a NUST MISIS full-time International Master’s Program:

Step 1

Choose a program of study you would like to pursue at NUST MISIS. Please check the following webpage: Tuition & Fees.

Step 2

Complete the application. See the list of documents you will need to complete and submit the application. The application deadline for Fall 2022 is August 9, 2022. However, all international students are strongly encouraged to apply by July 19, 2022 due to longer documents processing international students might encounter.

Step 3

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 receive details about the time of the interview and other instructions. Interviews will start in February and will be conducted on a monthly basis until July 31. 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 receive a conditional admission letter from the university via email.

Step 4

NUST MISIS will file a visa application form with the Federal Migration Service, which will issue your Visa Invitation Letter within 30 working days. NUST 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.

Step 5

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.

Step 6

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.

Step 7

After receiving the visa, send your preliminary itinerary (airline carrier, flight details including ETA and ETD) to your admission officer. It is strongly recommended that you arrange your flight for a working day so that the International Affairs Office could be in touch with you regarding any questions during your trip to Russia.
