Twice a year ITMO University organizes a competition for academic mobility programs in foreign partner universities in order to stimulate the educational process and increase the activity within the framework of the scientific and project activities of the students. The applicants who successfully passed this competition receive financial support to participate in programs of international academic mobility. The ITMO University pays a scholarship to the participant of program and provides a place in the dormitory (if necessary) for the whole duration of study.

Financing of studying at the partner university, travel and residence in the country of the partner university is made from the receiving party funds or personal funds of the postgraduate student.

At the end of the program, each partner university issues a diploma of its own type. ITMO University issues a State Diploma.
