Most Affordable Universities in Russia
A nation spanning Europe and Asia, Russia is the largest country in the world by area. Despite its size, Russia is one of the world’s least densely populated nations. Its capital city, Moscow, is the largest in Europe with a population of 20 million. Russia is a progressive country in terms of an economy—ranking 11th in the world.

Unsurprisingly, universities in Russia are reputable.  If you want to take your international study in this country, we have listed down some of the most inexpensive ones for much easier picking:

Altai State University

Altai State University is the most affordable institution in Russia for foreign students. It is based in Barnaul, Southern Russia, and was founded in 1973. Currently, it has 13 departments that cover different areas of study.

This public research institution has attracted a large influx of Asian students due to its proximity to China and nearby Asian countries. If international students need help, they can go to the International Affairs Department. The tuition fee for undergraduate students ranges from RUB 36,400 to 144,000 ($607 to $2,400).

Moscow Region State University

Established in 1931, the Moscow Region State University (MRSU) is one of the largest universities in Moscow. It has a lot of historical achievements in science and research. 

In Soviet times, MRSU was a leading institution and has now evolved into a modern institution with the latest innovations. There are around 250 international students in MRSU that focus on Russian studies. You will need RUB 73,500 to 340,000 ($980 to $4,500) to be accepted for undergraduate programs.

Far Eastern Federal University

The Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) is one of the oldest universities in Russia—founded in 1899. It is situated in Vladivostok in Russia’s far Eastern region, which is much closer to Japan and Korea than to Moscow. It has undergone multiple reforms which in turn became one of the leading universities in Asia.

FEFU collaborates with other Asian countries such as China, South Korea, and Japan, with branches in the US. It also has partnerships with other ministries in different countries. This strong international linkage has attracted foreign students to enroll in FEFU over the years.

Kazan Federal University

Kazan Federal University (KFU) is another affordable university in Russia, that is located in Kazan. There are around 50,000 students in KFU, 10,000 of which are international students from 106 countries. The university has achieved incredible feats mostly in the field of chemistry as it is known as the birthplace of organic chemistry. Probably the most popular student that attended the KFU is Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, famously known as Lenin, who headed the Soviet Russia government and the Soviet Union back in those times.
