Why study in Russia?

According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Russia has the most educated population in the world, outperforming Canada, Japan, Israel and the USA. More than half of Russians have higher education qualification. More than 200,000 people from 168 countries come to study at Russian universities. There are a lot of advantages to study in Russia, here are just a few:

  • Quality education
  • Russian standard of education
  • Friendly people
  • High Life Standard
  • Good environment
  • Cost effective

In Russia, you can acquire in-depth, fundamental knowledge in all subjects, but the country is best known for its strong academic schools in physics, mathematics and natural sciences. Russia is a recognized world leader in training mathematicians, physicists, chemists, geologists, engineers, programmers, physicians, and specialists in other natural sciences. This is confirmed by the positions of Russian universities in world rankings.

The Russian Federation proportionally is a largest country in Europe and its history as well as its actual role in the world is something special. It is not only in Europe that Russia has an important position but it is also an important international trading partner and player politically and economically.

Russian universities have a quite good network with universities all over the world. Every year thousands of students have the opportunity to go abroad and spend some time in another country, studying and living there through an exchange program, this is something very beneficial for all students.

Due to this, Russian universities and technical colleges try to provide enough university placements for international students annually.

Russian employees from different fields and disciplines are in great demand all over the world and have realistic chances of job placement in international companies around the world.

Russia itself is also a good and attractive country to work there later.

These opportunities exist due to the good Russian educational system.According to data provided by Study in Russia, the maximum cost of tuition at the country’s most elite universities tops out at 344,000 rubles annually — that’s $6,100 a year. Meanwhile, full-time bachelor’s degree programs start at just 63,000 rubles a year — or $1,100.

The only thing better than cheap tuition? Free tuition. The Russian government grants thousands of scholarships to international students every year. In 2016, for example, 15,000 scholarships were granted to international applicants covering full tuition, a maintenance allowance, and dormitory accommodations.

 

Lastly, university academic competitions also offer financial incentives to academic superstars.

And while Moscow may be expensive compared to other parts of Russia, the cost of living there is still significantly lower than it would be in other countries.

From its glorious architecture and fabled history to its vibrant culture and dazzling nightlife, there’s no end of things to see, do and discover in Russia. Lovers of the arts and sporting enthusiasts are equally likely to find plenty to love in Russia.

While your own host university will surely have plenty of activities to keep you busy, traveling throughout offers an amplified experience. Not only is Russia home to multiple climate zones, it also lays claim to 26 UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Red Square, the Kremlin, the Golden Mountains of Altai, Lake Baikal, the Holy Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius, and many amazing others. Many Russian universities even organize student trips to these landmarks.

Why study in Poland?

As a top international student destination, Poland provides an enriching cultural experience to incoming students worldwide. Most of those studying in Poland have only good things to say about the historical landmarks, beautiful landscapes, city life and the great variety of social activities. Many of them consider that the opportunity to study in Poland greatly helped their self-development.

More and more students each year are choosing to study abroad in Poland. These students are drawn to its high-quality education institutions, low tuition fees, and equally low cost of living. Read on to discover why you should consider studying abroad in Poland.

Located at the center of the Northern European plain, Poland serves as the geographical and cultural crossroads of Eastern and Western Europe. Poland has been a nation of survivors since the foundation of the first Polish state more than 1,000 years ago. Today, Poland is the largest of the former Eastern European states and the most populous new member of the European Union.

 

Education System in Poland

Poland’s education system dates back to the Middle Ages. Jagiellon University, for example, was founded in the 14th century, and today is one of the oldest universities in Europe. There are over 400 courses offered in English in Poland, many of them at an undergraduate level. Poland has several well-respected universities, including Jagiellonian University and Warsaw University. Warsaw University is ranked first in the Top Coder international IT ranking, outperforming such well-respected American universities as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The number of higher education institutions in Poland has quadrupled over the past ten years, while the number of students increased fivefold. International students who choose to study in Poland will have the opportunity to receive a quality education in a quickly burgeoning academic environment.

  • Poland’s medical schools, in particular, are drawing an increasing number of international students. Many international students who have been unable to get into a medical program in their home country choose instead to study medicine in Poland. Although these courses are taught in English, Polish speaking skills are likely to become necessary by the end of the program, when students begin consultations with patients.All leading universities in Poland offer high-quality programs taught in English, including medicine, engineering, humanities, business, and finance.The Polish take higher education seriously, and so students in Poland often have full timetables and work hard. However, Polish degrees are also much like the American system, and offer the opportunity to study more than one subject; you can specialize in certain areas but will get a general education too.It’s a great environment for those who love to learn and to debate; the Poles have something of a reputation for fearlessly discussing politics, religion and other ‘taboo’ topics. Outside of university, though, student life in Poland is social, with plenty of nightlife and things to do in its student cities. Students in Poland often stay in university accommodation with other people, but some also stay in private apartments.It’s very common in Poland to go on to do postgraduate study, with as many as 80% of students choosing to stay to do a Master’s or PhD. However, if that isn’t for you, there are also some options to work in Poland after graduation. The ‘Stay Card’ that some students will need to study in Poland can be extended to allow graduates to continue living and working in Poland long enough to find work. Graduates from full-time courses at a Polish institution can apply for one of these.

Why study in Canada?

Over 200,000 international students choose to pursue their education in Canada each year. If you are looking for a world-class education in an English-speaking nation with a high standard of living, look no further than Canada.

Canada has 12 universities ranked in the Times Higher Education Supplement Top 200. This strong education system (along with its economy and quality of life) earned Canada a designation by the UN as one of the best places in the world to live.

Canada utilizes the same three-fold degree system as the United States: Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree and Doctorate degree

Ample number of collaborative programs offering hands-on learning combined with a more theoretical approach makes Canada on the best destinations to pursue tertiary education overseas. The Canadian institutions offer tailored programs, and these courses may differ from campus to campus, but the ultimate goal is to provide service & support to ensure success of the students.

Another reason that makes Canada a dream education destination is that some international students who have graduated from Canadian Institution are allowed to apply for permanent residency visa without moving out of the country. Also, it’s a fact that over 90% of students who graduate from Canadian institutions get employed in their field of studies within 6 months after graduation, which is why studying in Canada is said to be an all-encompassing experience.Various reasons to study in Canada are:

  • Canadian universities are known for being consistently high quality and for offering internationally accepted degrees and credentials; some are ranked in the top 100 by reputable sources as The Times Higher Education Supplement and Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Academic Ranking of World Universities.Various specialization programs under diploma, degree, and post graduate diploma are offered at around 200 institutions nationwide and, tuition is generally much lower than in other leading study abroad countries. Students can pursue their studies at one of Canada’s top universities for roughly half of what it would cost to attend an equally reputable program at a private US university.International students can expect to be assisted in their university studies by such resources and services as orientation sessions, support programs, academic advising, prayer rooms, safe walk programs, student clubs, and assistance with medical concerns or housing issues.When the major educational institutions of the world adjusted to technological innovations, Canada played a great role and remains at the forefront of technology trends. It has consistently been an international leader in computer and information technologies, and has a reputation for excellence in such sectors as telecommunications, transportation, and engineering. Remember when the world started to recognize the need to connect schools and libraries to the Internet? Canada’s pioneering SchoolNet program has changed the way students learn and has made good echoes in other nations.Those technological innovations seem to cover the entire country as countless other modern, high-tech amenities are pretty much available to everyone. From Olympic-quality sports facilities to public concert halls and art galleries, Canada offers enormous possibilities for learning and leisure. There are incredible opportunities to meet like-minded people and gain valuable experience through student-run governments, media, and businesses. Studying abroad in Canada opens up a wealth of research and scholars to draw upon for several disciplines.International students can often work while they study and take advantage of many cooperative education and internship opportunities. There are also immigration programs that international students may qualify after graduation.

Why Study in China?

Studying abroad in China provides plenty of attractive options for international students seeking a high quality but affordable education. China is on the rise: the country’s economic development is evidence of this. This economic growth is being followed by an increased focus on education. China is investing heavily into education, which is leading to excellent options to all students, including internationals seeking new and attractive options.

China is a large country, full of natural and historical attractions. Those who wish to study abroad in China can take numerous trips in order to visit all of these attractions and really immerse themselves in the country and its rich culture.

China offers plenty of exciting options for people who wish to study at all levels of higher education, from Bachelor’s to PhD. Most programs and courses are not taught in English, which may be a problem for those who are not fluent in Chinese. However, the good news is that there are an increasing number of courses and even whole programmes taught in English. It all depends on the university, those who wish to study in China without learning the official language will be able to find great options taught in English language.

It’s important to emphasize that China already has many respectable universities that rank highly. For example, two of the C9 universities (Peking University and Thinghua) are already ranked highly (46th and 31st) and renowned as great places to get a quality education. Other highly regarded institutions are Fudan University, Shanghai Jiao Tong, the University of Science and Technology China, Nanjing University. China also has a great number of lesser known but fast developing universities, such as Tongi and Tianjin Universities. They are on the rise and make interesting destinations for those who are looking at different options to study in China.

China is quickly developing and emerging as a nation of quality education. It’s therefore not surprising it’s becoming a popular destination for international students seeking education. This is particularly true for Asian students who may choose to study in China rather than Europe or in North America to stay closer to home while still receiving high-quality education.

Also, China is actively working on attracting more international students. The Chinese government has already set a target to have 500,000 foreign students by 2020. There are many practical measures being taken to meet this goal, such as substantial scholarships for international students.
