Russia, with the highest literacy rate in the world (99.6%), has become increasingly popular as a destination of higher studies including Engineering among international/Indian students alike due to its internationally respected standards of education (with European equivalence) and affordable costs. The last 25-30 years especially have seen the number of international students coming to Russian federation skyrocket and Indian students are not lagging behind, with thousands of students from all over India successfully graduating from the most popular universities every year.

India and Russia have been sharing very friendly relations since before India’s independence. Russia has itself been a pioneer on the scientific and technological front. In space studies, the first spacecraft in the world the Russian “Sputnik”, the first human who went to space being Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. The first woman in space, Madame Valentina Tereshkova was also Russian.

The first Indian who went to space, Wing Commander Rakesh Sharma, was sent for training to Moscow by the Indian government before his departure from the Russian Space Station.

‘Sukhoi’ which ranks amongst the best fighter aircrafts in the world today, is manufactured in India by means of a collaboration between Russia and India. The BRAHMOS missile system is another great success story of cooperation and technological research between Russia and India.

The internationally renowned Engineering institute IIT Powai, Mumbai was set up with substantial assistance from the Russian government in the form of equipment and technical know-how. In accordance with our bilateral agreements, IIT Powai has received many experts from leading Russian institutions along with additional assistance from UNESCO to supplement the program.

Scientists and engineers from prominent government organizations like ISRO and DRDO are regularly sent by the government for training to the prestigious Russian research and training institutes. Successful collaboration between India and Russia in Defense, Nuclear energy, Education and many other spheres remains a continuous process due to the warm relations shared by the two countries.

Upon successfully completing the course in the premium Russian universities where we guide our students, the student receives an European Appendix along with the degree, which means that the degree is at par with a degree received in any country of the European Union and enjoys equal international recognition and prestige. In other words its European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)


1. The student must have PASSED the higher secondary examination or the Indian School Certificate Examination which is equivalent to 10+2 Higher Secondary Examinations after a period of 12 years’ study, the last two years of study comprising of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

2. The student must have obtained a minimum of 50% marks taken together in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics at the qualifying exam. (40%in case of OBC, SC and ST candidates)

3. He / She should have completed 17 years of age on or before 31st December of the year of admission to the foreign University

DURATION OF THE COURSE for engineering and technical specialties

  • “Bachelor of Science” degree – 4 years
  • “Master of Science” degree – 2 years
  • “Specialist” qualification – 5 years
  •  PhD – 3 years.

Foundation Course

In many cases, for studying in Russian universities at chosen specialty foreign students enter Foundation course in the 1st year of studies. Foundation course is a specialized educational program that lasts 1 academic year (from 7 to 10 months) in the course of which students learn Russian language and other subjects depending on the chosen future specialty (mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, humanities, history, literature).

At the end of the academic year students have final examinations. Students, who successfully pass the exams, receive Certificate of Foundation course graduation, which gives to the student the right of entering any Russian state university without entrance examinations.

If the course is in English, the student does not study at Foundation course. In this case a student enters directly the 1st year of studies at the university at chosen specialty.

University options would depend on the student’s academic merits and time of application and are provided after assessment of the documents by the international student’s department. University tuition fee is in the range of USD 2500 to 8500 per year, inclusive of university fee, hostel accommodation, and 1 year’s medical insurance depending upon the university and the specialty. Students living expenses are within the range of USD 100 per month.
