|His Excellency The Consul General of The Russian Federation recognizing EDURUSSIA as the official promoters of Russian Government Universities|
Russia, with the highest literacy rate in the world (99.6%), has become increasingly popular as a destination of higher studies among International / Indian students alike due to its internationally respected standards of education (with European equivalence) and affordable costs. The last 15-20 years especially have seen the number of International students coming to the Russian Federation skyrocket and Indian students are not lagging behind, with thousands of students from all over India successfully graduating from the more popular universities every year.
Upon successfully completing the course in the premium Russian universities where we guide our students, the student receives an European Appendix along with the degree, which means that the degree is at par with a degree received in any country of the European Union and enjoys equal international recognition and prestige.
