Why study in Russia?
Russia may not be the first study destination to come to mind.
However, there are attractive undergraduate study options in one of the world’s growing economic nations. Russia’s membership of the European Higher Education Area means that Russian universities and higher education institutions have begun to offer a more Westernised model of higher education.
That process is only beginning, though, and Russian universities can be challenging places, with a legacy of political interference, nepotism and corruption.
There are more than 600 state universities and a considerable number of private universities of variable quality. Despite this, it has no universities in Top 100 of the 2014–15 QS World University Rankings. The highest ranked Russian university is Lomonosov Moscow State University at 114th, followed by Saint-Petersburg State University at 233rd.
English-medium teaching exists but is restricted to a handful of universities who are eager to recruit internationally (not just from the UK and the US).
