Being the first stage postgraduate education, postgraduate studies in Europe, in fact, equivalent to the Russian postgraduate programs; for admission, you must have a master's degree. However, in terms of requirements and quality research, postgraduate study in the UK tends to be Russian doctoral studies. This feature allowed the Russian students get the highest research degree that is globally recognized, having studied at one (and not two, as in Russia) postgraduate programmes.
