Degree in Physics. Moscow State University and Moscow PhysTech vs Oxford UK and MIT USA.

Russian 4-year University degrees in Physics compared to Physics degrees from Oxford University (UK) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology(USA):
Moscow State University(MSU, Russia) and Oxford University (UK). Comparison of Degree Programs (Physics majors).
Pictures show the coursework that a student HAS TO DO to qualify for a degree.
On Russian side are shown programs(courseworks) of 4- year degrees in Physics from Moscow State University(MSU/МГУ) and from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology(MIPT/МФТИ).
On Oxford side is shown the first 4- year program ending with Master of Science degree (MS Physics).
On MIT side is shown full program(coursework) for 9-year PhD degree. Full program(coursework) for 9-year PhD degree consists of BS+PhD programs(courseworks).
The figures show the amount of instructional training given to students in Math, Physics and EECS on 4 year degree program in Physics. (EECS -Electrical Engineering and Computer Science)/
These 3D figures reflect the volume of Coursework that every student HAS TO DO to qualify for degree.
