The Government of Russia renders an opportunity for foreign students to study and train in Russian higher education institutions on a government scholarship basis. For the year 30 state scholarships are available for Thai students: including 20 scholarships for full professional education (Bachelor’s degree program ( 4-year term), Master’s degree program (2-year term) and certificated specialists program (5-year term), which is similar to Bachelor’s degree programs and Master’s degree programs taken together) and 10 scholarships for postgraduate studies – PH.D.(3-year term), doctoral studies – Dr.(2-year term) and training courses (6 months courses for foreign students or teachers who are graduated from Russian institutes or universities).
