MOSCOW, August 4 (Itar-Tass) – First phase of enrollment for universities and colleges is coming to completion in Russia. Saturday, university managements are expected to publish the lists of applicants who have been endorsed for enrollment.
July 30 was the deadline for enrollment of the so-called ‘intended’ applicants – the young people delegated for studies to one or another university or college by companies or organizations.
Simultaneously, the university directorates were supposed to publish the lists applicants who were admitted to studies. The would-be students then had four days at their disposal for making final decisions on whether or not they were going to study in a particular college or university and for submitting the originals of their secondary school graduation certificates there.
The second phase of enrollment begins as of August 5. If a university or college still has unfilled positions, it may invite the applicants with a smaller number of grade points.
The applicants getting enrollments in the second phase will be expected to submit their secondary school certificates August 9 at the latest.
The universities that will still have spare state-funded positions after the second phase will have an opportunity to announce additional enrollment, which they will be expected to complete by September 1 at the latest.
Like in the previous year, school graduates could submit their applications to up to five universities at a time. The winners of inter-school competitions in one or another discipline could use enrollment privileges in one university only and in one discipline.
Russia has about 800,000 secondary school leavers this year and the universities and colleges have 428,600 state-funded enrollment positions.
According to the data cited by Lyubov Glebova, the director of Russia’s education watchdog agency Rosobrnadzor, about 90% school leavers plan enrolling for universities and secondary specialized education colleges.
Earlier, Rosobrnadzor urged the public quarters to display cooperativeness during the university enrollment period. The Ministry of Education and Science has set up a hotline for everyone who would like to ask questions in connection with the ongoing enrollment process.
