    I'm studying international relations and political science

    Perhaps it's quite a simple questions but I don't know exactly which sentence is correct.

    1) I'm studying international relations and political science in/at the best Russian University.
    2) I study international relations and political science in/at the best Russian University.

    Personally I'd definitely go for the first sentence but I cannot explain to myself why the second one is worse. Moreover, I'm not enirely sure if "in" and "at" are interchangeable in the examples above.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Re: I'm studying international relations and political science

    They're both OK. Use 'at'.
    You're using 'worse' wrongly. 2 is only worse than 1 if both are bad. Since both are good, you need "not as good".
