Russia is the biggest country in the world with the population of about 150 million people, with large technological, economic and intellectual potential. The system of secondary and higher education in Russia is governed by the state and is very well developed. There are over 650 state and 450 private universities with over 6 million students. There are about 70 thousand secondary schools with over 20 million students.


Ukraine is the second largest contiguous country on the European continent, after the Russian Federation. Ukraine has a very large heavy-industry base and is one of the largest refiners of metallurgical products in Eastern Europe.

According to the Ukrainian constitution, access to free education is granted to all citizens. Complete general secondary education is compulsory in the state schools which constitute the overwhelming majority. Free higher education in state and communal educational establishments is provided on a competitive basis. There is also a small number of accredited private secondary and higher education institutions.


Officially the Republic of Kazakhstan is a country in Central Asia and Eastern Europe. The ninth largest country in the world by land area, it is also the world's largest landlocked country. The Ministry of Education of Kazakhstan runs a highly successful Bolashak scholarship, which is annually awarded to about five thousand applicants of Kazakhstan citizens. The scholarship funds their education and all living expenses abroad as well as transportation expenses once in a year from home to a university and back home.

    I have been participating in Students International road shows since 1998 - The exhibitions are always professionally run, well advertised and attended. Students International has offices in the cities where they exhibit so proper follow up with the students and parents can take place. For education institutions thinking of entering or expanding their Russian market Students International can assist.

    Following the SI Roadshow earlier this year I would just like to congratulate you on another successful event! It was my first time experience of an SI Roadshow and I was very impressed with the excellent organisation and the hard work and dedication shown by all of your staff. I was looked after extremely well and thoroughly enjoyed myself! The quality of students attending the fairs was very good and I certainly hope to be joining you again in the future! Thankyou for everything!

    I have participated in SI exhibitions in the Russian Far East on more than one occasion. SI staff have always taken good care of me, and have ensured that my visits to Russia are memorable and never dull! I have developed good friendships with SI staff in Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatski, and met with many hundreds of potential students at trade shows organised by SI. If you wish to recruit students from the Russian Far East then you should definitely consider joining an SI education exhibition tour.
