ST PETERSBURG, September 1 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has assured that there are no plans to cut the government-funded university places.
“We have a tough position – no plans to cut the government-funded places,” he said during his visit to St. Petersburg State Institute of Technology on Saturday.
“In the future this issue will be studied. But undoubtedly we will take into account financial opportunities of people.”
He emphasized that the reform of military colleges had been over.
“Ten large military centres were created instead of multiple small military schools,” Medvedev said.
The country has only 80-85 percent of the necessary number of student hostels, he said noting that the program on the construction of new hostels and modernization of old ones can be implemented only by 2018.
