For admission in the Russian Universities, the timing of application is crucial. Generally, the right time to apply is before October to 30th October. But this year, in 2021, there could be some variation due to COVID 19.

We say that the timing of application is crucial because the issuance of the Invitation Letter by the Ministry of Education, Russia takes around 4-8 weeks on the basis of which the Russian Consulate in India issues the visa to you. If you are late in applying, you may miss going there with your batch mates. The Pskov State University admission 2021 will also follow the same pattern.
