Before I came to study in Canada, I spent two years at a University in Moscow, Russia. I am currently studying at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. Having spent a few years in Russia and now Canada, I feel I can provide a good comparison between the two countries and their education systems. I will not argue whether one is better than another. But I will point out some differences, which I believe are going to be true not only in the case of comparing the Russian education system to Canadian, but for other countries as well.
