Experience in Moscow, Russian Federation by Ronke

What is it like to live in Moscow? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Yes, Moscow is an interesting place to live. The people and the environment are well accommodating. It is a beautiful place to live with good transportation means. The people like fun so much but they are always in hurry especially when they are walking. I recommend students to come to Moscow to have a taste in the wealth of Russians sociopolitical, economic and cultural life of the people.


What is the student lifestyle like in Moscow?

Sincerely, students are drilled academically to fit the labour market of the 21st century.

Students are open to several social activities as Moscow has an endless list of recreational, games and fun centers. There's nothing a student need that won't be found here. Everything is turned to fun for this people.

How much does it cost to live in Moscow?

Living in Moscow is very expensive, especially for students. The social cards helps reduce the cost of transportation but housing and feeding is quite on the high side for students. Most schools are helping out by giving an almost full deduction of discount for dormitories.

It's still worth living here because we enjoy full services for whatever we paid for.

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Moscow? Is there any advice you can give?

It is difficult and expensive as I said earlier, the best option is for the school to continue to get involve and give such maximum discount for housing and dormitories because a non working students will find it hard to pay the charges.


What is the food like? What are your favourite dishes?

The food here is good, they have different spontaneous meals and the cost depends on the type of cafe one decides to visit. I like the Russian soups a lot because they have different types that I can't even mention. It is cheaper for students to cook at home than to eat in the cafe. There are good market where international students can buy their local foods although it's expensive.

What places would you recommend visiting in Moscow?

Red-square and the uncountable historical museum loitering the streets of Moscow. Most museums are free for students to visit.


Is it good to eat out in Moscow? Can you tell us your favourite spots?

I rarely eat outside because it is very expensive for students but few times I did it was in the school cafeteria.

Is the nightlife good in Moscow? Where is good to go?

The night time of Moscow is very beautiful and safe for both foreigners and citizens. Places one can go includes the Cinema, skiiying centers, Red Square, clubs, gym, etc.

What advice would you give future students heading to Moscow?

My advice for future students is to get prepared for the cold, and be ready to have fun. Moscow is full of endless fun. Most importantly, learn basic Russian Language because most of the people do not understand English.
