The Russian education system is a multistage process that encourages lifelong learning. This system includes compulsory general education (kindergartens and schools) and professional education (colleges, technical schools, and universities). In turn, professional education is divided into secondary and higher education. Professional development and retraining programs are considered the final educational stage.

Applying to a Russian University
International students must complete a preparatory course before they can begin their chosen bachelor’s or master’s program. These courses are intended to help foreigners achieve a level of proficiency in Russian that is sufficient for studying at any Russian university.
Summer and winter schools offer students the chance to mix study with fun at well-known universities throughout the country. These courses allow you to improve your Russian skills while getting a taste of student life and meeting young people from around the world.
Russian is one of the most rewarding languages a student can learn. It is spoken by more than 200 million people around the world and is considered a second mother tongue for most of Eastern Europe and the CIS. Employees who can speak Russian are in high demand on the job market, and can often find prestigious jobs in many business sectors and international organizations. Russian is also one of the official languages of the United Nations (UN). You can study Russian by participating in a preparatory pre-university course, special language course, winter or summer school, or language club also study the language remotely (online).
International students can take the state-recognized international Russian language proficiency exam, TRKI/TORFL (Test of Russian as a Foreign Language). Not all universities will require applicants to submit a TORFL certificate, but it may be considered a significant advantage. In addition, this certificate may come in handy when applying for a job in the future.

The examination system is divided into six certified levels of Russian language proficiency. However, certificates are only offered to students who achieve a B1 or higher.

2. A2 (TBU/Basic level): the applicant is able to communicate successfully in a store, cafe, or on the street, and can maintain a conversation on a limited range of everyday topics. This level is required when applying for Russian citizenship.
3. B1 (TRKI-I / first certification level): with this level, you can enroll at a university or get a job that does not require lengthy negotiations.
4. B2 (TRKI-II / second level): quite fluent; the applicant can understand native speakers speaking quickly, write in different styles, and maintain a conversation about both everyday and highly specialized topics. This level is given to foreign graduates after completing their bachelor’s and master’s programs.
5. C1 (TRKI-III/Level III): the applicant is able to use the Russian language effectively in both domestic and professional spheres. With this certificate, a person can be hired for jobs requiring fluent Russian, such as a newspaper journalist.
