On August 8 Rector of South Ural State University Aleksandr Skestakov signed an order on enrolment of government-subsidized students. During the ceremony the interim results of 2018 Admissions Committee were summarized.
This year SUSU provided 3344 state funded places of higher professional education programs. Up to date more than 12 000 enrollees from all over Russia submitted their documents to the university. Except for the Southern Ural inhabitants, the inhabitants of the Republic of Bashkortostan, the Kurgan Region, the Orenburg Region and the Sverdlovsk Region exhibited the most activity. Enrollees from the remote regions such as the Chukotka Autonomous District, the Kamchatka Territory, Crimea, as well as Moscow and Saint-Petersburg expressed a desire for entering SUSU.
“Increase of the number of enrollees from the other regions of the country is the result of improvement of quality of education at the university and close cooperation with the employers from all over the Russian Federation. Perspectives of our students’ further career growth depend on the quality of education that is why I wish them to do well in studies and participate in the interesting and eventful life of South Ural State University,” said Rector of SUSU Aleksandr Shestakov.
Enrollees from the near abroad countries also want to obtain education at one of the leading Russian universities. This year for the first time ever 150 residents from Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan entered the university state funded places; earlier a delegation of SUSU held the occupational guidance for the prospective students in the educational establishments of above mentioned countries.
“Enrollees from Central Asia have been choosing mainly the engineering directions of study; many of them entered Institute of Engineering and Technology and School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. An adaptation course developed specially for them will be underway starting from September to December. The significance of foreign students’ engagement consists in the fact that our university is included in the list of those universities which are recognized as the exporters of the Russian education. Foreign students’ interest in studying at SUSU speaks for the fact that the university recognizability is growing not only in Russia and Kazakhstan with which we are related by longtime cooperation, but in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan as well,” noted Yulia Bolotina, Deputy Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs of SUSU.
In total, 2017 enrollees were enrolled for the state funded places of intramural mode of study of the bachelor’s degree and the specialist’s qualification programs and 743 enrollees for the master’s degree programs, 15% of them are the graduates of the other universities. 540 enrollees were enrolled for the extramural mode of study.
“This year the highest interest in state funded places was among the enrollees of Institute of Linguistics and International Communications, such directions as “International Relations” and “Regional Studies” tuned to be especially popular, the competition for which was up to 15 people per one place,” commented Executive Secretary of Admissions Committee Aleksandr Gubarev.
Except for the high passing scores at Institute of Linguistics and International Communications, “Fundamental Computer Science and Information Technology” direction of School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science also requires high passing scores (246 scores), as well as “Construction of Unique Buildings and Facilities” direction of Institute of Architecture and Construction (230 scores).
It should be noted that the acceptance of documents for the fee basis study of intramural mode will last till August 15 inclusive and of extramural mode till September 15.
