Russian Education Fair opened up a golden opportunity for aspiring Indian students seeking admission to higher education in Russia, which is considered high quality and widely recognized and at the same time comparably less expensive. The successful conduct of the annual Education Fair with the active participation of Russian educational experts in India has met with a tremendous response in the past in attracting a substantial number of Indian students, which is growing from year to year, to higher educational courses, particularly medicine, engineering, aviation, computer science, etc., in leading Russian universities.
The cost of higher education in Russia is relatively cheaper as compared to that in India because it is highly subsidized by the Government of the Russian Federation. Scholarship seats, including free tuition and accommodation, are also provided to the eligible candidates. There are about 12000 Indian students currently studying at various faculties of arts, science, engineering, and medical institutions in Russia. In the past three years, the number of Indian students going to Russia has increased considerably. There are no pre-qualifying exams like CET, IELTS, etc., for admissions to universities in Russia. Students should a minimum of 50 percent marks in the relevant core subjects/degrees. In the case of SC/ST and OBC students, it is 40 percent. Each academic year comprises two semesters, excluding annual holidays during July and August each year.
