Is it difficult to get a scholarship from the Russian government?
Government scholarships are awarded to the most talented students on the basis of their academic merit. The commission looks at your secondary school marks if you apply for a Bachelor’s programme, or at your academic excellence during undergraduate studies if you apply for a Master’s programme.
If you wish to take part in the competition you need to prepare yourself: to enquire about the procedure, to collect all necessary documents, to enrol into Russian language courses at your country. You don’t have to speak Russian to get funding, but language skills will give you an advantage and will help to adapt easily to a new environment.
All the above mentioned will help you to outscore other applicants. If you don’t succeed in getting a scholarship, don’t worry! Consider the option of fee-based education. Costs of education in Russia are much lower than in Europe and in the USA. You can use our search engine to find the right programme for you. See programme descriptions for information about fees and contacts. Also you can create personal account and send an application directly to the university.
