Great, great, great semester. The IUM & HSE offer a wealth of courses from all sorts of areas in mathematics that I could not get back home. Very challenging, and therefore very enriching. I have not before had such a comprehensive view all in one class

Amazing, enriching experience on so many levels.

Enjoyed the stay and the quiet, peaceful math environment !

Pomona College


This has been the best experience studying mathematics. Before, I didn’t really care that much about math, but the approach to mathematics here has made me completely fascinated by mathematics ! And the students here have been the best ! Yay math !

Elise McMahon
Ave Maria University


The courses here challenged me in the best way possible. I learned so much, not only about math but also about life experiences and also Russian language & culture. I’m excited to be coming back to Moscow next year !

Chloe Ondracek
Minot State University


The courses here are very cool, but I don’t think that’s the strongest point (even though it’s very strong). The people here care about the students a lot, and they can help you develop in ways others can’t. Amazing experience.

Senthil Rajasekaran
Tulane University


I’ve done a lot of math before this program, but in this program I feel as though I’ve finally learned to think as a mathematician. I feel like the lessons I learned here will insure me for the rest of my career.

Take this kiss upon the brow
And in parting from you now
Thus much let me avow
You are not wrong who deem
That my days have been a dream
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night or in a day
In a vision or in none
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream

Sarah Jackson
Texas Tech University


I’m not much for words, but this semester has been fantastic, and I’d highly recommend it to anyone who wants to come.
