With a highly educated population and a well-developed higher education system, Russia is the largest successor state to emerge from the break-up of the former Soviet Union in 1991. The country is faced with managing the demands of an ageing demographic within an overall declining population, and using its natural resources wealth to rebalance the economy. While increasingly more Russian students have been going abroad to study in recent years, and the UK is among the preferred destinations, London has also become popular among Russian professionals and businesspeople. The rising number of Russians abroad is driving demand for education and British independent schools are highly regarded due to their reputation for academic excellence and broad curriculum. Russian parents also believe there has been a significant drop in the quality of education at home which is also helping to increase interest in sending their children abroad.

Amid renewed efforts to bring in more foreign students, government interest in the internationalisation of higher education has also resulted in increasing the support for more Russian students to go abroad. Given the high value of education among Russians, there is a market for educational services in the UK. This report provides an understanding of the potential and possibilities for recruiting school and university students, and helps support schools in the UK and elsewhere, develop more informed internationalisation strategies.
