TOMSK, Nov 9 – RIA Tomsk. Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) approved admission rules for applicants in 2022; the university will start accepting documents from entrants from February, the admission process will take into account scores for university events for school students, and master's students will be enrolled in two waves, the university's press service said.

Earlier it was reported that the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation is changing the procedure for admission to universities from 2021. Some of the new rules will be introduced centrally for all higher education institutions, while others will be chosen by the universities themselves.

According to the TPU website, in 2022 the university will have 3,519 state-funded places (in 2021 – 3,671, including Yurga Institute of Technology, TPU affiliate – Ed.), of which 1,824 will go to bachelors and specialists (full-time) and 1,314 to graduate students.

Admission of documents

"Tomsk Polytechnic University has adopted admission rules for applicants for the year 2022. They can be found on the TPU Applicant website. <...> Tomsk Polytechnic University will begin accepting documents from applicants from February 1, 2022. This applies to all applicants – full-time and part-time – for Bachelor's, Specialist's, and Master's degrees. Only the deadline for applying for postgraduate studies has not yet been determined", – the statement said.

According to the press service, the university has never started accepting documents before June 20.

"We did this with the main purpose to make the applicants feel calmer, so that they have more time to make a decision. I would like to point out here that receiving documents does not mean that admission will be earlier. No. However, applicants will have more time to prepare documents and choose the direction", – executive secretary of the TPU Central Admissions Commission Alexander Denisevich said.

Like last year, documents can be submitted through the TPU Applicant website, by mail, through the Gosuslugi state services portal – it will be available not only to applicants for full-time Bachelor's and Specialist's degree, but also to graduate applicants, it will also make no difference whether the applicant is applying for a paid or state-funded place, full-time or part-time.

Applicants can also apply in person if the epidemiological situation in the region allows.


It is planned to admit master's degree students in two waves. In the first wave 80% of the state-funded places are supposed to be filled, the applicants with the 85+ scores during the entrance exams will be enrolled.

"Enrolment of the first wave will take place as early as July 30. In the second wave, the remaining state-funded places will be filled and the admission will take place on August 16", – Denisevich is quoted.

Admission to the Bachelor's and Specialist's Degree programs will be held traditionally: in zero wave (for scholarship holders and graduates of competitions) and in the main wave.

This year, however, universities will no longer publish orders with the names of the applicants; the websites will also have enrolment lists consisting of Individual insurance account numbers (SNILS) and unique codes.

Minimum points

Minimum scores for full-time Bachelor's and Specialist's degree programs in 2021 will remain the same: 56 in Russian language, 45 in maths and physics, 48 in chemistry, and 53 in IT.

According to the press release, the minimum points for students with study-for-fee form of education, intramural, extramural, intra-extramural and part-time students, as well as for applicants of including Yurga Institute of Technology, TPU affiliate, will be as follows: Russian – 40 points, majoring in mathematics and physics – 39, chemistry – 39, informatics – 44.

In 2022, universities have returned the right to credit up to 10 extra points for participating in events for students, the press service notes.

"The main condition is that the activities for which the university will give extra points must be free for school students. TPU will publish detailed regulations in December on what we can get up to 10 points for. There will, of course, be events at the international, all-Russian level, as well as our traditional Tomsk events for high school students – scientific-practical conferences, case championships, and so on", – explains Denisevich.

Graduates of colleges – according to the results of the USE

Graduates of secondary schools were previously admitted to the university based on the results of entrance exams held by the university, the press service said. From 2022, graduates of secondary specialized educational institutions will be admitted based on the results of the Unified State Exam (USE) or profile entrance examinations.

"This means that universities will have to offer secondary specialized educational institutions graduates entrance exams not in general subjects, but in specialized ones, depending on the focus of the technical school itself and its curriculum", – Denisevich explained.
