Education is one of the pivots of Russia-Vietnam cooperation. Your country has helped us train more than 10,000 highly qualified specialists. Many graduates have taken up top leaderships positions in Vietnam such as Prime Minister, Secretary-General, heads of ministries and agencies. Many of them work in such important areas as oil and gas engineering and nuclear power engineering.

Admission within the Russian Government quota

Today more than 3,000 Vietnamese students are studying at Russian universities, including more than 2,000 students studying within education quotas.

Vietnam is ranked among the leaders by the number of Russian quotas allocated by the Russian Government annually. For example, in the 2019-2020 academic year, 965 Vietnamese citizens qualified for studying in Russia within the quota in such areas as finance and banking, international relations, information and communication technologies, power engineering, agriculture.

Talented Vietnamese young people are selected for some (approximately 1/5) quota places to study at Russian universities mostly through participation in the Olympiads. School students participate in competitions in several subjects such as Russian language, mathematics, physics, and informatics. 

Teachers of particular subjects and staff members of the leading Russian universities looking to recruit Vietnamese students are invited to hold the Olympiads on each subject. 

The number of universities participating in the Rossotrudnichestvo Olympiads increases every year: it amounted to 30 last year. These are the leading Russian universities: the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, NUST MISiS, National Research Tomsk State University, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (National Research University), Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas, Moscow State University of Technology "STANKIN," Moscow State University of Civil Engineering, Bauman Moscow State Technical University, and many others.

Citizens of Vietnam can study at Russian universities on a fee-paying basis. Tuition fees in Russia are substantially lower than those at European and American universities.
