Welcome from the General Director of «RACUS»
In the twenty-first century, the immense value of high-quality education is indisputable. High-quality education is the key to success, the basis of prosperity and the starting point for a secure future.
In Russia, education has always been subject to special emphasis as educated people make up the true wealth of the country. A high level of education guarantees national growth and the integration of the country into the global community. For this reason the Russian government annually assigns billions of US Dollars to the development of the educational sphere. Thanks to this, Russia has for many years had the world’s highest literacy rate (99.6 per cent of the population).
Over six hundred and fifty state higher education establishments operate in Russia. They prepare specialists in more than two hundred degree programs/specialties in the fields of medicine, engineering, economics and humanities. The development of the educational sphere, including training specialists for foreign countries, is one of the top priorities of the Russian government. At present, there are more than 280 000 international students from 200 countries studying in Russia. Being one of the world’s leaders in educational standards, Russia fulfills its humanitarian mission by giving young people from all over the world the opportunity to obtain globally respected higher education. Russian education is equally affordable to families with either large or moderate incomes. In this way, Russia helps citizens of developing nations to contribute to the formation and prosperity of their homeland.
We invite you to study in Russia – the largest country in the world, where many great scientists and discoverers, Nobel Prize winners, outstanding doctors, sportsmen, architects, actors, world-famous painters, authors and poets were born; the country where sympathetic, kindhearted and hospitable people of more than 160 nationalities reside in peace. Whilst studying at a Russian university, you will be able to establish friendly relationships with future colleagues from Russia and many other countries. These personal links will ensure close and friendly relations in the areas of economy and culture between your country and the rest of the world, which is the keystone of successful cooperation in business.
The high standard of education, collaboration with partners around the world, the comfortable educational environment, an exciting life experience and, of course, a chance to make new friends – all these features make education at a Russian university the key to your future success.
The professional staff of RACUS will be happy to assist all those who are interested in studying in Russia’s prestigious state universities. Your dream of affordable high-quality education can finally come true!
