Every year, the Russian Federation government offers thousands of government-funded seats for international candidates, and the number of international applicants admitted to study at various Russian institutions of higher learning through the quotas issued by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education grows annually. In academic year 2019/2020, it exceeded 13,000. The following year, it reached almost 15,000. This year, it is set to rise to 18,000.
Over 7,000 applications have been submitted to the Ministry of Science and Higher Education so far this year, of which more than 2,000 have been approved and the rest are still being considered by the Russian universities. It is expected that 7,000 more applications will be received in the current year.
The number of international students admitted annually to study in Russia is set to double and reach 30,000 by 2023.
