MOSCOW, September 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Another 11 higher educational institutions across Russia have been prohibited from enrolling new students as they have failed to “comply with instructions following checks,” the country’s education watchdog, Rosobrnadzor, said on Monday.
The list includes state and private organizations in central and southern Russia, Urals and Siberia, as well as five state universities from Moscow, Ivanovo, Makhachkala, Novosibirsk and Yekaterinburg.
“The ban on enrolling students is a preventive measure that means that higher educational institutions and their branches may continue carrying out educational activities,” the press service of the Federal Education and Science Supervision Agency (Rosobrnadzor) said.
As of this fall, some 7 million people currently study in 593 state and 486 private higher educational institutions across Russia, which have a total of 1,376 and 682 branches, respectively, the Russian Ministry of Education and Science says.
More than 2 million people are able to study using budget funds. Each student costs the Russian budget up to $3,500 per year. Some 250,000 foreign students go to 750 Russian universities. Foreigners account for 2.3% of students in Russia. This number is expected to grow to 6% by next year and to 10% by 2018.
Russia's best universities, according to the QS World University Rankings issued in September, include the Lomonosov Moscow State University (114), the Saint-Petersburg State University (233), the Bauman Moscow State Technical University (322) and the Novosibirsk State University (328). The Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO-University) is 399th.
QS World University Rankings have the world's top 863 universities, including 21 in Russia.
