Exchange Programs

Thank you for the interest in studying at Far Eastern Federal University!

This page includes information for students to participate in academic exchange programs based on the Agreements with our partner universities. The exchange students come to spend only one or two academic semesters at our university and they do not get a degree in Russia.

We hope your staying at FEFU is successful and comfortable that it contributes to your academic progress as well as your personal development. If you have any questions or problems feel free to contact us.

We kindly inform you that according to the Russian migration legislation since 2018 all foreign citizens must pay a state duty to get an Invitation Letter in order to obtain the Russian visa.

Based on that the cost of processing for a single foreign citizen coming to the Academic mobility program or a short-term educational program (summer/ winter schools) in the amount of 1 300 rubles.

Please follow our instructions on how to pay Invitation Documents Tax.
