Although it would be easy to dismiss Russia’s accomplishments and just list a number of political leaders who shaped the world politics, the truth is that Russia has given us more than just the cute waltz of “Once upon a December” from Anastasia. From athletes like Anna Kournikova and Maria Sharapova, to composers like Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, or Shostakovich, to great authors like Nabokov, and Dostoyevsky (and all other “-evsky”s, and “-ov”s and “-ova”s), Russia gave us of the most influential people in history. You have to assume that a country that gave us so many celebrities has its universities and teaching system in order, right? Russia has 21 universities in the World University Ranking, so it’s no wonder so many students choose to come and study here. Besides the obvious high quality of teaching, we have to mention the great campuses and facilities: seeing asRussia is the largest country in the world, they can afford to turn a huge plot of land into a campus, adding parks, fountains, museums, and even botanical gardens. Still, you do have to keep in mind that winters in Russia can be rough and the climate can be fickle. But, luckily, Russian kindergartens allow children to run outside in their underwear, and then dump freezing water over them to strengthen their immune system. so, students can brave the weather and bring mittens from home.

To study in English at one of the universities in Russia, you may need a proof of English proficiency. There are several standardised English tests that you can take to proof your English level, such as the PTE (Pearson Test of English), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System), offered by British Council and IDP. IELTS is the most popular of these tests, with British Council offering more than 500 test locations and being accepted by more than 9,000 organisations world-wide.
