Russia places a high value on education, and a whopping 54% of people between ages 25 and 64 have university degrees. This respect for education is reflected in the quality of Russian universities, which attract over 250,000 foreign students annually. Many prestigious universities, such as MGIMO and St. Petersburg State University, also offer courses to foreigners in English.
Russian universities are high up the world rankings, but don’t let this deter you. This arguably has more to do with the fact that most only recently began to adopt the standard American system of academic departments. Russian universities tend to offer courses in just one or two main subjects, which is one factor that prevents them from moving higher up the world rankings, regardless of the work ethic or quality of education one would receive there. And don’t be fooled–Russian students tend to be highly intelligent and motivated, and you’ll be thrown right in the mix with them.
