TOMSK, Apr 5 – RIA Tomsk. Tomsk universities plan to increase the number of international students by 10 thousand by 2024 and by 40 thousand by 2030 within the framework of the Big University project; educational institutions rely not on bachelors, but on masters and graduate students, TSU Vice-Rector for International Affairs Artyom Rykun told reporters on Monday.

Earlier it was reported that the Big University project involves the unification of all universities and research institutes of Tomsk into a single scientific and educational consortium with the preservation of the legal autonomy of all participants. The main goal of the project is to unite the scientific, educational and infrastructural capabilities of universities for their full-fledged competition with world university centers.

He added that at the same time, universities are planning to "shift the proportions": "Now we have bachelors dominating. We must ensure that a significant proportion of students are at higher levels – it is a master's degree, PHD, postgraduate. In this way we will provide an inflow to our scientific schools, as well as ensure the training of personnel for Russian high-tech industries."
