The main part of master programs is conducted in Russian, however Master programs in “Nanobiotechnology” and “Fundamental and Systemic Ecology” are carried out in English (see also http://en.szmsubit.edu.cn/; one can apply for the same two programs to Joint MSU-BIT University in Shenzhen). Besides, several Summer and Winter schools are conducted in English (see http://masterinbiology.ru for more information).
