The Director of Educational Policy of NCFU spoke about the admission campaign of 2021
Vasily Ivanov, Director of Educational Policy at the North Caucasus Federal University, became a participant in the program "People of Business" on Radio “Komsomolskaya Pravda”. He answered the questions about the 2021 admission campaign.
Currently, the admission campaign is in full swing in all universities of the country. Young people who have graduated from schools are preparing to become students, making one of the most important choices in their lives – which university to go to study at. As Anna Ivershen, the presenter of the People of Business program, noted, the North Caucasus Federal University is one of the hundred best universities in Russia. There are a lot of people who want to enroll in it: by now, more than 15,000 applications have been submitted to the university. Vasily Ivanov, Director for Educational Policy of NEFU, stressed that the number of budget places has increased this year and exceeded three thousand:
– In 2021, we are seeing an increase in demand for admission to our university and an increase in the number of applicants from completely different regions of both Russia and abroad.
Last year's admission campaign was held in a completely unusual remote format for everyone. The current situation allows you to accept documents from applicants both in person and online. But unlike previous years, in 2021, enrollment in the university will take place in one wave. Vasily Ivanov said that such areas of training as law, economics, management, philology, linguistics, as well as specialties related to IT technologies are in the highest demand among applicants.
– From year to year, we see an increase in demand for technical specialties. There is indeed a need for specialists in such areas.
During the conversation, the issue of implementing a system of discounts for applicants by the university was raised. It was emphasized that the university provides discounts of up to 20% in the most popular specialties, if the applicant does not have enough for admission to the budget no more than 10 points. In addition, at the end of two semesters, students have the opportunity to apply for
a government education grant, if any.
The admission campaign at the North Caucasus Federal University for applicants on a budget will last until July 29, for applicants on a commercial basis-until September 24.
