ITMO University implements a number of double-degree programs in collaboration with its international partner universities. Financing of studies at a partner university, travel and accommodation in the country of a partner university is made from the receiving party's funds or personal funds of the PhD student. At the end of the program, each partner university issues a diploma of its own type. ITMO University issues a state diploma.
ITMO University supports its PhD students' academic mobility endeavors by holding a partial funding competition for their participation in a research internship up to one month in length at a university or a research center abroad, as well as their participation in online and offline international (i.e. those held outside of Russia) conferences in order to deliver a report.
