Study in Russia


Russia FlagRussia has many unique advantages as a study abroad destination. Here are ten reasons why you should consider studying abroad in Russia.

1. Russian Language

For students interested in studying Russian, especially those at home institutions without course offerings in the language, there is only one destination for Russian immersion and language.

2. Strong Universities

Russia has a number of strong institutions of higher education, though many are located in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Moscow State University and Saint Petersburg State University are two of the most well known.

3. Moscow

The capital of Russia and the largest metropolitan area in Europe, Moscow is the cultural center of Russia. From the grandeur of its architecture to its numerous museums and galleries, Moscow is truly unlike any other European city.

4. Red Square

Perhaps one of the most recognizable destinations around the world, this famous square has major political and social importance.

5. Russian Ballet

Even if you are not normally a ballet fan, it is worth it to take in a performance of a classical or contemporary piece from one of Russia’s two world-famous companies, the Bolshoi and the Kirov.

6. St. Petersburg

Russia’s second largest city (and the former capital), St. Petersburg is home to more of Russia’s major universities and plays a large roll in Russia’s international political and business affairs.

7. Tretyakov Gallery

Rivaling many of Europe’s top museums, the Tretyakov is home to works by Chagall, Kandinsky, and many other famous 20th century artists.

8. The Kermlin

Located adjacent to Red Square, the Kremlin is a UNESCO World Heritage site. This world-famous political landmark is a compound of cathedrals, government buildings and palaces with major historical and political significance.

9. The Hermitage Museum

Home to over 2.7 million exhibits, the Hermitage Museums is considered one of the great museums of the world. Like the Tretyakov Gallery, the Hermitage Museum rivals many of the best European museums.

10. Friendly People

By and large, the people you meet in Russia will be friendly and laid back. Take advantage and practice your Russian skills. During your Russia study abroad time you are likely to meet many people who may become lifelong friends.
