The fair has become the largest international education exhibition in Russia, providing students with access to global study opportunities, and it has also created new recruitment opportunities for foreign education institutions in Russia.

The Russian government has revealed plans to encourage students to study abroad, by funding up to 10,000 students a year to attend some of the world’s leading universities. According to a recent survey, education investment has become the favourite choice of many Russian parents. Students and parents alike are looking forward to finding out about opportunities to study abroad, making this event essential both for visitors and recruiters. International experts forecast that by 2020 Russia may enter the top-5 list of leading “demand states” in the world educational market, and the amount paid for education by the Russian students will triple.
The number of Russians receiving an education abroad has grown significantly over the last few years, with English language programs being the most popular courses according to data released by AcademConsult, a local company that organizes study abroad for Russian students.
Every year more and more Russian students pack their bags and go to study abroad. The most popular destination is Europe. Latest survey indicates that every third Russian student who is going to study abroad selects United Kingdom, every sixth-seventh - France or Germany. Study in Finland, Sweden and Netherlands is more and more attractive for many young Russians. High quality of Swiss education in the field of hospitality industry is well-known here.
