Under the new rules of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, Belarusian applicants granted easier admission access to Russian universities.
Russian universities provide preference for the effects of Centralized Testing (CT) in entrance exams administered by universities independently. It is therefore possible to hold an interview with the applicant if appropriate. The Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation forwarded a letter to the Russian educational institutions of higher education. Centralized testing (CT) carried out in Belarus to evaluate expertise prior to entering higher, secondary, specialized, and vocational educational institutions. Within the Russian Government’s quota for the 2021-2022 academic year, 700 seats allocated for Belarusian students. And which is almost twice the number of places allocated for the 2020-2021 academic year.
