Study abroad in Russia

­­Why Study in Russia?­

Russia is one of the fastest developing countries and rapidly emerging as a destination for foreign students.  Sprawling across two continents and spanning an incredible eleven time zones, Russia is the largest country in the world by far. Within its vast boundaries lie some of the most luxurious palaces, extensive plateaus, highest mountains, coldest cities, strongest vodkas, best ballet companies, and largest collections of stacking dolls.

Universities in Russia

There are more than 880 universities in Russia, and the government is investing heavily in making improvements to the system. Between 2011 and 2015, 390 billion roubles (US$13.5 billion) has been allocated for upgrading facilities and technical equipment at Russian universities, and improving training for teaching staff. Russia offers a choice between a four-year bachelor’s degree or a five-year ‘specialist’ degree. Best student cities in Russia are :

  • Moscow
  • St Petersburg 
  • Tomsk

Russian University Requirements

The majority of university courses are taught in Russian, so good knowledge of the language is a definite plus! However, most Russian universities offer one-year preparatory courses for international students, which allows students to get up to the required standard very quickly. International applicants may also be required to demonstrate proficiency in Russian or English, depending on which language the course is taught in.

Russian Student visas

Once offered a place to study in Russia, the university files for a Russian student visa for students. This could take between three and five weeks, and costs about US$40. Anyone planning to stay in the country for more than 90 days is also required to submit the results of a medical examination and HIV test. It is possible to obtain a work permit in order to take a part-time job, either on the university campus or elsewhere. The Russian academic year runs from September to June, split into two semesters.
