I recommend this master’s program to young students, since it is a training for the future, specifically for those, who wishes to work in the organizations of the UN or NGOs, protecting human rights. This allows you to have a broad range of knowledge about international rights.

The knowledge gained is universal and will be useful and interesting to every person. The biggest advantage of this master's program are summer schools and internships. This is a colossal experience, an opportunity to immerse yourself in the topic of human rights protection with your head, to meet unique people who are equally interested in this field and those who work in it, ask them any questions, discover not only new professional moments, but also a whole the layer of real difficulties and problems in this area that humanity faces. I can safely say that this program helps to look wider and deeper at the world and people.

This is a unique experience of immersion in the field of application of international law in practice. Most of all, when studying at the master's program, I remembered the Summer School in Venice in 2017. We still maintain warm relations with most of the participants.

An extensive range of knowledge in all branches of law, great attention is paid to international law, the protection of human rights by means of both national and international law. Most of all I remember the responsible and attentive attitude of the educators towards teaching the students. I would like to note the unique educational program, which is relevant and meets the challenges of the modern world.

The master's program provides not only a baggage of practical and theoretical skills, but also new acquaintances necessary for the development of a future career. It should also be noted the opportunity to participate in internships, in the classes and lectures of world-class lecturers, where pressing issues and topics in the field of international law and human rights are covered, and, of course, the summer school on human rights.

Strong teaching staff. Each student has the opportunity to individually discuss issues related to scientific work with the teacher. Discussion of topical issues during lectures, seminars, conferences. Availability of the necessary literature for writing scientific papers. Numerous speeches by students enrolled in the master's program, with presentations. Preparation of articles for scientific conferences and their discussion. Undertaking an internship at the Office of the Ombudsman in the Sverdlovsk Region. I believe that training in this master's program provides good knowledge that will definitely be useful not only in the professional field, but also in life in general. At the same time, thanks to numerous seminars and conferences that always touch upon the most pressing issues, you learn to reflect, express your thoughts, you start looking at some things from a different point of view.

I would recommend it to those who would like to engage in the protection of human rights, because within two years one can gain systemic knowledge about the regional and international system of human rights protection, as well as learn to apply knowledge in practice (including when writing articles on a relevant topic).

Pros – a unique program, summer schools, interaction with the UN, Office of the Ombudsman, etc.
Cons – the need to move between universities, different level of teaching of a number of disciplines and the questionable necessity of them being included in the program.

In addition to intensive studies and regular classes conducted by renowned visiting professors, students are given the opportunity to participate in international schools on human rights, the ECHR model, etc. All this gives a chance to gain the necessary knowledge that will later become the basis for becoming a professional in the field of human rights protection.

Previously one could only dream of such a program. And now I have become part of a huge consortium with wonderful teachers from all over the world, program participants from different universities. And everyone is united by a sense of justice in human rights, without discrimination and any distinctions. Isn't that wonderful?!

There is a long-term cooperation between the University Paris-West Nanterre La Défense and the Libera Arts University (Yekaterinburg), thanks to which I studied in Russia. The master's program has brought me a lot of knowledge in international law and international protection of human rights. I really hope to become a teacher of international law and international relations.

In addition to a decent academic background, the master's program allowed me to find many fruitful contacts with leading human rights defenders in Russia and foreign countries, which continue after graduation. The strength of the program is the traditional model of the ECHR, which strengthens the legal and language skills necessary for future human rights work.

Most of all, the emphasis was placed on studying the activities of various international bodies – this is the main advantage. This program helps to broaden the horizons.

Studying in the framework of the Master's program in the protection of human rights at the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia gave me a deep understanding of the specifics of this area and allowed me to take a broader look at contemporary problems of both international law and the states’ national policies.

The Master's program "International Protection of Human Rights" is unique in the preparation of highly qualified human rights personnel in Russia. As one of the first graduates of this program, I would like to thank A.Kh. Abashidze and the entire teaching staff for their professionalism in teaching.
