Study Physics in Russian Universities

  1. May 30, 2009 #1
    Is it good to study Physics (Bachelor Degree) in Russian Universities?

    Which university is the best in Physics in Russia?

    How can I determine which branch of Physics should I study?

    Is it a must to learn Russian in order to attend the lecture?

    Is there any class that will use English as major of teaching medium?

    I saw some posts from other forum talking about there is a high fail rate for any Physics programme at Lomonosov Moscow State University.

    Many students can't graduate from this university successfully. Is that true?

    Thank you very much!

    I've met a couple of russians in engineering and science, they come from a variety of schools such as Novosibirsk, Moscow State, MIPT, and others.. They are quite capable, all of them already have a master degree (I think this is standard from Russian Education). The program i think is 5-6 years. All of them are already published in scientific journals before arriving to the US for their PhDs.

    I think russian language is a must, except if you plan to go abroad for a summer.
