example, in Tomsk Polytechnic University
(TPU), from applicants it's only
required the passport and certificate. "We will do all the rest: we will
photograph for free, and the results of the USE will be looked at the
base", – the director of Student Contingent Management Center Alexey
on the state-funded places will pass in two waves: on August 3 and 8. In the
first wave will be filled about 80% of state-funded places, in the second - the
remaining 20%. At the same time, the enrollment of benefit holder persons,
contract specialists and children entering according to the results of the
academic competition will be held on July 29. To obtain a state-funded place,
the applicant must personally write a consent to enrollment.
To aim for
the state-funded place
according to Sonkin, in 2017, Tomsk universities will take for the state-funded
places 9.64 thousand students – 300 more than the year before. The greatest
increase – is in Tomsk State University (TSU), Siberian State Medical
University (SSMU) and TPU.
most provided with state-funded places are such groups of specialties as
electro- and heat power engineering, electronics, radio engineering and
communication systems, earth sciences, engineering and construction technology,
education, medical science, computer science and computer technology", –
the deputy governor listed.
that correspondence education and obtaining the second diploma in parallel with
the first higher education are becoming less popular. "In the late 1990s
and early 2000s it was fashionable to enter immediately on two specialties: for
example, technical and economic. Now this tendency is weaker", – explained
years, there is also a reduction in the number of state-funded places in the
bachelor's programs and an increase in the master's degree programs: now, for
the first stage of higher education there are provided 5866 places in the Tomsk
universities, and 3777 are provided for the master's program.
As the head of the department of the organization of students admission of TSU Olga Betkher told, the number of places for master programme in this university has grown till 1153 (last year – 958), having been close to admission figures on programs of bachelor and specialist programmes. At the same time the number of master programs grows annually – now there are 108of the, including in English.

Places are redistributed between the directions of bachelor programme.
"Our university has such specifics that there are state funded places only on profile specialties – with physics and informatics. Economy, law, humanitarian directions – there are only fee-paying places", – the head of the department of admission and distribution of students of Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics (TUSUR) Alexey Mozgunov noted.
to representatives of the universities, the reception campaign has the nuances
in each of the Tomsk universities. As the factor complicating receipt they note
existence of a threshold of lowest passing scores for the Unified State
Examination (USE) which won't allow weak entrants to enter a university even on
a fee-paying basis.
our Tomsk universities increase the lowest passing score. On the one hand, it
limits a possibility of receipt, on another hand, quality of the arriving and
their ability to training are connected with results which they get on the
USE", – Mozgunov is sure.
told, for example, this year only those whose scores (provided that these
subjects are necessary to enter a concrete specialty) are not lower than 46 in
mathematics, 54 in Russian, 50 in physics, 52 in social science, 51 in
chemistry and informatics may join a bachelor or a specialist programme.
universities give the chance to gain "bonus" scores for various
entering TPU it is possible to receive up to 10 scores for a number of personal
achievements: for the certificate with honors, GTO golden badge, the sports
category which isn't lower the first sport grade, a rank of the champion of
Europe or the world, participation in programs of Internet Lyceum of the
university and others.
there are special scores for those who enter the Training military center at
the university which trains regular officers, – an entrant can receive up to
five additional scores for examination in physical culture which can be passed
at the university.

for residents of the Crimea which existed in recent years aren't provided in
this campaign: it is considered that the education system of this region was
already enough integrated into the education system of the Russian Federation.
However all of them still can choose, wether they enter on the basis of results
of the USE or examinations passed in the university.
representatives of universities advise to consider that last year there was a
competition even on fee-paying places for some specialities (for example,
faculty of journalism of TSU). However this year the number of tuition students
can be decreased because of increase in prices for training – it was reported
earlier that it had grown up almost twice for some specialities.
students from 70 regions of the Russian Federation and from 60 countries study
in the Tomsk universities.
expect that approximately 30% of enrolled (in Tomsk universities in 2017) will
be residents of the Tomsk region, 25% – foreign citizens, 45% – residents of
other regions of the Russian Federation, first of all these are the Siberian
regions. The best entrants arrive to us, and two thirds of graduates remain in
the Tomsk region. Thus, we are attracting the best guys from other regions to
Tomsk", – Sonkin added.
At the same
time, universities lure talented students not only with quality education or a
variety of training programs, but also with various pleasant bonuses. For
example, for the academic competition winners and entrants who got very high
scores at the exams enhanced scholarship, place in more comfortable dormitories
(in general, first-year students are provided with places by 100%) and even a
subscription to the pool are provided.
