Global Education Program

One of the main objectives for modern Russia is to preserve and strengthen the competiveness of the human resourсe potential of the country. That is why the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia has designed the Global Education Program which involves a series of measures to support citizens of the Russian Federation who have entered leading foreign universities on their own and to create conditions for their return to Russia after completing training.
First of all, the Program provides free training of Russian citizens in leading foreign universities according to Master’s, Postgraduate and Residency programs. One of the main conditions to receive a grant for studying in the leading foreign universities is the employment in Russian companies after graduation and professional practice for not less than 3 years.
