How much money does an average student spend in Russia? How much do I need to bring with me?
On average, a Russian student spends 300 to 400 US dollars a month. However, you need to have around 300 or 400 dollars for miscellaneous expenses, such as health insurance, household equipment (kitchenware, bed linen, and cleaning items), and certain study materials. It’s an approximate sum that depends on your habits and needs. Your expenses can actually be larger or smaller. In general, Russian university students have many incentives which help them cut the costs of transportation, entertainment etc. A majority of universities have their own sport centres where students can pursue sports free of charge or for a small fee.
