Study in Russia! Are you thinking about it?

Why to study in Russia?

Study in Russia

Conceived by Peter the Great as a "Window to the West," and christened "The Cradle of the Great October Socialist Revolution," St. Petersburg is the perfect setting to explore the intriguing complexities of Russia's past and present. Whether you're beginning or continuing your study of the Russian language, studying abroad in St. Petersburg will help you develop your skills while gaining a greater appreciation of Russian politics, history, and culture. And with homestays, peer tutors, volunteering, excursions, and specialized cultural events, study abroad in Russia offers you unparalleled insight into the city, county, and people, and an a truly immersive international experience.

However, you could also choose a different city to study in Russia. Moscow for example the capital. According to the 2013 issue of Forbes magazine, Moscow has the largest number of billionaire residents in the world. Moscow is the northernmost megacity on Earth. It is bigger and richer than London, Paris or Berlin.

Moscow is one of the main financial centers of the Russian Federation and CIS countries and is well known for its business schools and science centers. However, studying in Moscow is expensive than St. Petersburg or other Russian cities. It's the price you pay in being at the commercial and power center of Russia.
