ur decision of going russia. is bad..
i stayed in russia and have repented the very same.. finally i moved to ukraine. where i m finishing my course..
no jobs are available in russia for students.. as everything there is in russian... so you first need to knw very well russian before of even thinkin of doing MDS. university will tell u bullshit of course being in english n all. but dude .. it turns out to be in russian only.....!!!!
as u told about fees.. there is always hidden costs inside ... it depends wer ur applying .
its been 5 yr i have been living in this USSR. .
so i knw.. them well..
so final advice for you... if possible dont apply for russia.. !! and if still thinkin of going for it due to low cost.. then be prepared for loads .. of problems!!!!
