Education is affordable in Russia compared to US and UK


According to Tabrez, a student from Bihar, studies in Russia are much cheaper than in the US and UK. When a student from Mobarak Pur, a small village in the Aurangabad district of Bihar, learned about the Russian government scholarship, his life changed.

In 2010, while reading a newspaper, he was tempted to study abroad. This journey was not easy. Tabrez Khan will receive his PhD in Industrial and Civil Engineering in the second year from People’s Friendship University, Russia. His research includes studying Engineering Management Systems in construction projects in India.

According to Tabrez, “I’ve been here for eight years now. I came here for higher education. Here I completed my bachelor and master engineering (civil engineering). I started my studies in 2010-11 after taking a Russian language course. Since the language of instruction here is Russian, it is necessary to take a Russian language course.

“Learning the Russian language opened a lot of doors for me. I worked as an interpreter during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit in 2015, 2017 and was part of the delegation during former President Pranab Mukherjee’s visit in October 2013.” Please inform that Tabrez Khan is also the president of the Association of Indian Students in Moscow.

During his early education in Gaya, Bihar, he thought about doing civil engineering from a European country. He later realized that Russian civil architecture was far ahead in this regard. Living in Russia is much cheaper than in any other European city. He said: ‘I studied here on a scholarship, so the Russian government used to bear all the costs of my living and education.’
