As for me, it depends on the person himself, and his desire to learn. I have many foreigners, among whom there are such excellent students that ours even envy them. But there are those who don't give a damn about everything. I think this is due to the fact that parents give them a lot of freedom and money. And with such it is difficult to resist all the delights of the city. Here you will find beautiful girls, cars, alcohol, and cool parties in clubs.
Oh-oh-oh, Ruslan, with your question you are entering a very narrow path of chauvinism and nationalism. But I will try to answer your question within the bounds of decency.
Obviously, most of Russia's universities (and students) are concentrated in our capitals - Moscow, St. Petersburg. Initially, there are more places in them than the locals could have received. Therefore, the inhabitants of the republics of the Caucasus, which is logical, go to study in cities with a population of one million, if they are not interested in studying at home.
The governments of the republics, for example, Chechen or Dagestan, very actively interact with Moscow universities. Target places are specially created for residents of these regions. What does it mean? The authorities pay for the studies of "their" students, and in return they promise to return home after graduation and work for a certain number of years for the benefit of their small homeland.
The results of the exam do not matter here, the main thing is to pass the mandatory minimum points. The main question now is how these places and who gets it, but you yourself can answer it. The fact is that virtually anyone can get a target place - both the most important excellent student from a small village, and the second cousin of the second sister of the head of the republic N, who can hardly add 2 and 2.
it turns out that the majority of “target groups” traveling to the capital may represent a not quite educated stratum of society that does not want to be enlightened. Other regions of Russia also send their "Cossacks" to study in the capital, and there, too, there are many unclear why they received these places of students.
But due to the fact that Caucasian communities are highly developed and their representatives have their own cultural roots, "local" students develop a stereotype that "Caucasians study poorly" because Lena is an idiot from Syzran and Pasha It is difficult to assign a concrete person from Bryansk to any general social group.
Fuh, it was not easy to write: D Make peace not war.
Four of my 25 students were Caucasians. Three of them were the best among the others in my disciplines. By the way, one of them had a better Russian language than the Russians, who had lived in St. Petersburg all their lives, and the guy had already moved at school age. Caucasian , Tajik, American, Chinese, Russian ... The quality of your knowledge largely depends on your own priorities and efforts, and not on your nationality. PS - I do not protect anyone and I do not scold anyone, people are different, this is a fact, but is there any sense in such high-profile absolutizations?
