Tomsk is a perfect choice for students with a tight budget and who long for a 100% Siberian experience! The city appears in the world’s top 10 universities for affordability in the QS best student cities ranking and is ranked 91st in the QS best student cities overall ranking.

The third largest city in Russia and economic heart of Siberia, Novosibirsk is a rapidly developing city full of employment opportunities for young graduates. Students often have a tight budget and Novosibirsk can be the perfect compromise between life in a buzzing city and one in an expensive city, whilst still studying at a prestigious university.

Renamed successively Petrograd, Leningrad, and finally, Saint Petersburg, the city of Peter the Great was Russia’s capital city for over 200 years and remains its cultural heart.
