India and Russia have been sharing very friendly relations since before India’s independence. Russia has itself been a pioneer on the scientific and technological front. In space studies, the first spacecraft in the world the “Sputnik”, the first human who went to space being Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. The first woman in space, Madame Valentina Tereshkova was also Russian.
The first Indian who went to space, Wing Commander Rakesh Sharma, was sent for training to Moscow by the Indian government before his departure from the Russian Space Station.
‘Sukhoi’ which ranks amongst the best fighter aircrafts in the world today, is manufactured in India by means of a collaboration between Russia and India. The BRAHMOS missile system is another great success story of cooperation and technological research between Russia and India.
The internationally renowned Engineering institute IIT Powai, was set up with substantial assistance from the Russian government in the form of equipment and technical know-how. In accordance with our bilateral agreements, IIT Powai has received many experts from leading Russian institutions along with additional assistance from UNESCO to supplement the program.
Scientists and engineers from prominent government organizations like ISRO and DRDO and regularly sent by the government for training to the prestigious Russian research and training institutes. Successful collaboration between India and Russia in Defense, Nuclear energy, Education and many other spheres remains a continuous process due to the warm relations shared by the two countries.

In many cases, for studying in Russian universities at chosen specialty foreign students enter Foundation course in the 1st year of studies. Foundation course is a specialized educational program that lasts 1 academic year (from 7 to 10 months) in the course of which students learn Russian language and other subjects depending on the chosen future speciality (mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, humanities, history, literature). At the end of the academic year students have final examinations. Students, who successfully pass the exams, receive Certificate of Foundation course graduation, which gives to the student the right of entering any Russian state university without entrance examinations.
If the course is in English, the student does not study at Foundation course. In this case a student enters directly the 1st year of studies at the university at chosen specialty.
