A Word from the Rector

Welcome to the Institute for the Humanities and Information Technologies (IGUMO&IT)!

From a college with some 20 students founded at the dawn of Perestroyka, IGUMO has grown into an full-scale innovative institution of higher education with a mission to advance knowledge, promote teaching and research, and help modern Russian society to discover new ways to overcome its most pressing problems.

IGUMO's academic environment attracts outstanding students and scholars from around the country and abroad, while its generous financial aid programmes make IGUMO accessible to students from all economic backgrounds. IGUMO is proud of its ties with the local community. Our musical and theatrical offerings, public lectures, and forums enhance the intellectual and cultural vibrancy of the region.

At IGUMO, education is limited neither by time nor space. It is an ongoing and restless research, one to which this Institute is dedicated. It is a pleasure for me to welcome you to IGUMO.

Sincerely yours, 
Marina Volynkina 
Rector of IGUMO&IT, Professor, Doctor of Juridical Science (PhD, Doctor of Law)

My hands on experience of what really matters 21.10.2016
My hands on experience of what really matters

Let me introduce myself. I am Ksenia Panteleyeva, a student of the 4th year, Faculty of Linguistics, and Ive picked up some hands-on experience to share with fellow treaders on the path of translation. This summer I tried a real translation bureau for a job of a translators assistant. It was really priceless, I realized that my translation classes really matter, and, what I am really proud of, sometimes I had an opportunity to check the work of the professionals and even correct their work sometimes - and, at the same time, to find something new I could learn.
