I officially welcome you to the Education sector of the Nigerian Community Russian Federation.
This office deals with issues regarding education and Nigerian students studying in Russian Federation.
“No-one is born educated as no nation is born developed. Rather both are processes that continue to evolve over a period of time.
Young people must be included from birth. A society that cuts itself off from Education severs its lifeline”
Education is central to development and to the improvement of the lives of young people globally, and as such has been identified as a priority area in internationally agreed development goals, including the Millennium Development Goals and the World Programme of Action for Youth. Education is important in eradicating poverty and hunger and in promoting sustained, inclusive and equitable economic growth and sustainable development. Increased efforts towards education accessibility, quality and affordability are central to global development efforts.
There is a need to align education policies, curricula and training programmes, in a people-centric way, with national development priorities and needs, international development strategies and labour market requirements. Doing so will promote the situation of young people, fight extreme poverty, and allow for a maximization of the benefits of globalization for youth.
The socio-political changes that have been taking place in Russia and the transition to a market economy have led to a need to reform the education system. The Constitution of the Russian Federation of 1993 and the federal law On Education of 1992 and its 1996 revisions strengthened the right of citizens to education, stimulated the democratization of life in educational institutions, extended academic freedom and institutional autonomy, and promoted the humanization of education. There are different institutions of higher learnings spread across Russian Federation that offers different disciplines.
Studying in Russia is very welcomed to foreigners and the universities are of international standard. Russia is a great country and a peaceful society especially for students as long as the student obeys the laws of the Russian Federation and has the financial ability to sponsor himself/herself throughout his/her studies i.e if he/she is a private student. The fees varies too.
