The partnership between London Metropolitan University and the Moscow Architecture School MARCH is unique in the Russian educational landscape.
The University as it is today was created in 2002 with the merging of London Guildhall University and the University of North London, the first merger between two universities in the UK. Its roots, however, lie firmly in the nineteenth century with the establishment of the Metropolitan Evening Classes for Young Men in 1848.
LMU is a diverse and vibrant university right in the centre of London. It offers courses from design to life sciences; from business to computing; and law to anthropology. Here you can study as an undergraduate or a postgraduate student, or undertake professional or vocational training.
In Russia, LMU has been partnering with the State University of Management (SUM) and Moscow International Business School MIRBIS.
