Admission

This year's admission is closed, check back around next February! Here's admission information so you'd know what to expect.

The main directions of research in our group include Deep Learning and Bayesian Methods, Optimization in Machine Learning, Structured Prediction, and Reinforcement Learning. For now, we work only with Russian-speaking students from Moscow universities. Bachelor students of the 2nd - 4th years and Master students of the 1st year of study are eligible to apply.

Admission process (all steps of the process are in Russian):

  1. Complete the application form online. We use the same form for all students, so it is ok if you are a sophomore student and don’t have much to answer all the questions.
  2. Write a scientific report on a topic which we will send you after the 1st step. Report format details.
  3. We will invite you to the oral interview.
  4. The best applicants will be selected to participate in a summer internship. This internship is a kind of probation: you will work on a research project with a curator from our group and we'll see whether we are a good match. The internship may be skipped in extra cases.

The deadline for the scientific report is May, 1. We will organize interviews in May and notify the applicants accepted to the internship by the end of May.

For bachelor students of the 2nd year from CMC MSU the process is slightly different due to the faculty’s time limits. For these students the deadline for the scientific report is April, 12. Interviews will take place after that and decisions will be announced by the end of April. The decision about the admission to the group will be made without the internship. However, it's strongly recommended to participate in the internship nevertheless.
