The official registration of foreigners in the information system has opened to participate in the selection for training in Russia for 2021/22, reports the TASS agency with reference to Rossotrudnichestvo.
The opportunity to become a student for foreigners is provided free of charge under a special quota of the Government of Russia.
Apart from the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation and Rossotrudnichestvo, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia also takes part in the selection campaign.
Foreign citizens and compatriots who live abroad and want to study in Russia at the expense of the federal budget can send their documents until February 20, 2021.
Access to the registration information system is carried out on a special website “Education in the Russian Federation for Foreigners” (GIS ORFI). Persons who have not registered on this site are not allowed to participate in the competition. GIS ORFI is a new service, a “single window” that will provide a completely transparent process: from filing an application, selection to support, including migration.
Foreign citizens and stateless persons, including compatriots living abroad and who have expressed a desire to study in Russia to participate in the qualifying tests, send documents through the above information system for collecting documents free of charge.
For the 2021/2022 academic year, recruitment is carried out under educational programs of secondary vocational, higher and additional vocational education at the expense of allocations from the federal budget of Russia for citizens of Turkmenistan, stateless persons, compatriots living in Turkmenistan.
How is the selection of the lucky ones, who will study for free in Russia? It is carried out in two stages.
The first stage is carried out by Russian foreign missions using the information system. Based on the test results, a list of candidates is formed according to the quota allocated for the country. It is examined by the central office of Rossotrudnichestvo and submitted to the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia.
The second stage of selection is carried out by the Russian educational department and universities, after examining the dossier of candidates. The results of the second stage of selection are reported to Rossotrudnichestvo, and it informs Russian missions abroad. Then all that remains is to discuss with future students the technical issues of entering the territory of Russia.ф
