In addition to the basic information about universities and their educational programs, which are described on the site in an amount of 2800, potential applicants can learn the features of living in our country. A separate section "Life in Russia" is dedicated to these features. There is collected all the necessary information about the dormitories, transport, student benefits, medical care, food, leisure, climate, etc.
Povalko Alexander, Deputy Minister of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, commented on the creation of the site: "Internationalization, including attracting the best students from other countries - one of the most important directions of development of Russian higher education institutions participating in the project 5-100. According to statistics, in the 2014/2015 academic year in the Russian universities studied more than 220 thousand students from abroad, and in some universities participating in the project 5-100, this number reached 20% of the total amount of students, which corresponds to the index of the best world universities. We hope that due to the Study in Russia site even more young foreigners will be able to enjoy the benefits of higher education in Russia".
The site lets quickly find a university, determine the level of education and training direction, find out the value of specific program and even pass a test on knowledge of Russian language.
