Students increasingly prefer European universities for the quality of knowledge and relatively low tuition fees.
Even though the level of training is not worse than in the USA or Canada, study in Europe will be at least twice cheaper. In the Russian Federation State universities the cost starts from EUR 800 per year, in USA from $8,000-10,000.
