"In the current year budget cut to 4.3% next year - by 10,2%. That is the future we will lose around half a million of budget places," - said the first deputy chairman of the Duma Committee on Education and Science, Oleg Smolin.

MP adamantly opposed to this trend, noting that today in Russia for free learn to at least 50% of the students, while, for example, in France, they exceed 80%.

However, Education Minister Andrei Fursenko said the reduction of budget places quite justified. According to him, now in the country for free learn much more than the law of 170 people per 10 thousand population, and, moreover, there is a surplus of graduates in some specialties, who subsequently have problems with employment. That's uncalled for in the labor market, as well as non-core for higher education specialties and will decrease the budget places.

Those who have the opportunity to study on a commercial basis, is also worth remembering that a tuition fee costs may not be limited, although it is quite large amounts: in most universities Tuition starts at $ 4-5 thousand per year. The fact that the number of paid places, too limited, and hence the commercial offices has its own competition. So we have to seriously prepare for exams, or search for "informal" moves.
