Russia has opened doors for prospective Master’s students by providing scholarships under the Russian Scholarship Project, Russia’s first international competition.
The project has the support of the Russian Ministry of Education and Sciences and the Rossotrudnichestvo Federal Agency and organized by the Association Global Universities.
This is the first project that gives a chance to students from all over the globe to pursue their master’s degree from Russia without entrance exams, using a single window system.
There are 500 universities spread across 80 cities in Russia to choose from. Some of the universities are even listed among the top international rankings, as listed by the Times Higher Education (THE).
The competition is not only open for foreign students but also for the Russian citizens living abroad having a bachelor’s degree or will graduate in 2018. The competition will be conducted online.
To participate in the competition one can sign up on the project’s website: od.globaluni.ru/en and pass two rounds of selection. The first round consists of a portfolio contest. The final round will be an online test that will be held from January 25 to February 6, 2018. The result will be declared on February 20 on the project’s website.
The competition will be held in four subject areas i.e. Mathematics, Computer Science, Economics, and Physics. The winners can choose any program of their choice based on the subject areas and then apply to any university that offers the program.
