The cost of education in Russia is much cheaper as compared to other international education hubs.
At present, about 100,000 foreign students from over 200 countries are studying in Russia.
But, as opposed to other popular foreign education destinations like the US and the UK, a meagre number of over 4,500 Indians are studying in Russia.
Given, Russia’s world-class educational facility in the field of medicine, 90% of the Indian students pursue medicine study in the country.
