The number of state-funded places at Russia's oldest technical university has increased significantly this year.
On Monday, June 21, Mining University began accepting documents for admission to the university. There are four forms of submitting them to the admissions committee. First, applications can be submitted remotely, through the applicant’s account on the priem-univer.ru website. The applicant fills in all the necessary fields and attaches scanned copies of documents. The second way is to send them by “Russian Post”. The third way is to act through the Gosuslugi portal.
“The in-person acceptance of documents in the building of the University (entrance from the embankment of Lieutenant Schmidt) has also been resumed, as opposed to a completely remote campaign in 2020. However, anti-epidemic restrictions remain: a mask regime, sanitary markings for a safe distance, disinfection of the premises is regularly carried out, all employees of the admission committee are also protected,” said Denis Pelenev, executive secretary of the admission committee of Mining University.
To keep applicants and their parents fully informed about the work of the admissions committee, there is a call center, whose operators are ready to answer all incoming questions. You can also ask them via messengers, groups in social networks, online chat on the website. You can write messages and send documents for admission at any time.
The main feature of this year is the significantly increased number of state-funded places almost on all specialties: last year, there were 1953 seats, this year, there will be 2251. The greatest increase in the number of students on the state-financed program was in Oil and Gas Business: from 210 to 244. In addition, the number of fields of study, for which the applicants can simultaneously apply, has been increased from three to five.
Another important innovation is that to be enrolled in the university, first-year students who have passed the competition for state-funded seats, now do not need to give the admissions committee a certificate of secondary education. It is enough to submit a statement of consent to enrollment and submit a copy. The original must be submitted during the first year of study.
Acceptance of documents from applicants began June 20 and will run until July 29.
