PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, November 13. /TASS/. The Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) branch in Kamchatka will be closed in accordance with the decision of the FEFU Academic Council. More than 600 students are offered to transfer to other institutions in Kamchatka or to FEFU in Vladivostok, FEFU press service head Alexey Magalyas told TASS on Friday.
"In accordance with the decree of Rosobrnadzor [Russian education watchdog] from 14 July 2015, the state accreditation has been suspended for all activities performed by the FEFU branch in the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, including in spheres of law, economics, construction, power engineering, and electrical engineering," Magalyas said.
The branch will not be able to issue state diplomas without accreditation. Students will also lose the right to postpone army service, tax benefits and education leave for working students.
