Universities in Russia 

There are 24 universities in Russia featured within the QS World University Rankings® 2018, 10 of which are placed among the top 400 universities worldwide. Russia also boasts a substantial presence in the QS EECA University Rankings, a ranking of the 300 leading universities in emerging Europe and central Asia, with a whopping 95 Russian universities currently featured.
Over the past decade or so, higher education in Russia has undergone significant change, with 390 billion rubles (~US$6.7 billion) allocated between 2011 and 2015 for upgrading facilities and technical equipment at Russian universities, and improving training for teaching staff.
Additionally, in 2003, Russia signed up to the Bologna Process, pledging to bring its system in line with most other countries across Europe. This means many universities in Russia now offer a choice between a four-year bachelor’s degree and a five-year specialist degree. Russia’s higher education system was ranked 26th in the world, in the first edition of the QS Higher Education System Strength Rankings. 

Moscow Moscow

Ranked among the world's top 40 cities for students in the QS Best Student Cities 2017, Russia’s capital city has a global appeal. Steeped in both contemporary and historical importance, Moscow is also Russia’s cultural capital, home to an impressive array of cosmopolitan delights as well as numerous monuments, museums, galleries and buildings, all providing insights into the city’s often turbulent and intriguing past.
Centered on the Kremlin and the famous Red Square, Moscow’s streets ripple outwards in a series of concentric circles. While living costs are notoriously among the highest in the world, in the latest QS Best Student Cities index Moscow receives a decent score for “affordability” – thanks to relatively low tuition costs and inexpensive food and drink, which offset high outlays on accommodation.
St. Basil’s Cathedral, the most colorful of Moscow’s cultural sights, may catch your eye first, but the city offers so much more for the long-term visitor. Whether you want to get away from the bustling streets in a cozy English-style tavern or enjoy a stylish meal at a French bistro, Moscow can give you all this and more, including high-end clubs, live music, rustic bars and world-class opera and theatre.
