My opinion of MGIMO University
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

To study at this University means hard labour, which is expected from both teachers and faculty. In return they give excellent response and are not afraid of telling you so if you score low on assignments or at regular tests. All in all I would say it is one of the better universities, based on feedback from fellow students.

Everyone deserves a second chance, don't we?

Quite frankly, I had a really bad experience and I want to improve those mistakes.
