This year the NCFU had over 11,000 applications from school graduates with 3,648 free-of-charge vacancies allocated from the Ministry of Education. The most popular degrees included philological and pedagogic-philological training, oil and gas, economic & computer security, law studies. Engineering specialties have proven rather popular among applicants as well, which meant only those with the top final graduate score could try the luck.

Now, the NCFU has become a second home to over 7,000 students including 2,359 of those pursuing Master’s degrees. The geographic coverage from the applicants has expanded, too – the freshmen come from 60 areas of Russia and 27 foreign countries, while 70% of them are from the Stavropol region. Typically, most graduates stay in the region thus implementing their newly acquired knowledge to promote the home region’s development.

This year the NCFU has established a new Institute – the Institute of Engineering, while students of the Institute of Oil & Gas have got a special surprise – a renovated building. Besides, a swimming pool is to be launched soon at the NCFU.
