Study PhD in Russia

Choosing to study PhD in a leading Russian State University or a National Research Russian State University will render you the following advantages:

  • Research is integrated into learning
  • Bilingual diploma: in Russian and English languages
  • Enhanced opportunities for career development
  • European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)
  • Practice and traineeships in leading Russian and foreign companies
  • Access to research and technological resources
  • Modern educational technologies
  • low Professor: student ratios
  • Multilingual Professors speaking english, german, french will create a better understanding and creative environment for the student
  • Russian State Universities have a reputation for high quality research
  • Common core in years 1 and 2 for all engineering students
  • Final choice of specialisation can be made at start of year 3

Come and complete your Doctorate in Russia with CFER. All international students are invited to study Doctorate degree programs in Russia.

Language of instruction: Russian / English

Studying in English language will help you think, analyze, ascertain and reach at a conclusion the topics and issues that interest you in a language comfortable to you and native to many of our international students. It will also give you the added benefit of understanding the Russia perspective, “Russian way of doing things”, without learning the Russian language.

Duration: 3-4 years

The individual research for PhD in Russia takes approximately 80% of complete curriculum. The thesis defense is organized at the session of the Dissertation Council into which the leading specialists of the University on this speciality are included. The standard forms of Ph.D. classes approved by the state educational standard are:

  • Lectures on the program disciplines;
  • Practical workshops in the scientific laboratories,
  • Independent study at libraries and with the help of the computing educational facilities,
  • Individual research under supervision of experienced professor,
  • Preparation of scientific publications and conference reports,
  • Visit to Russian scientific organizations;
  • Consultations of the scientific supervisors,
  • Planned exams.
