ST PETERSBURG, 18 July (BelTA) – Russia is mulling over the allocation of additional state-funded places for Belarusian students in its universities, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the plenary session of the 6th Forum of Regions of Belarus and Russia on 18 July, BelTA has learned.
“Russia is considering a possibility of allocating additional state-funded places in our universities for Belarusian nationals,” said Vladimir Putin. In his words, about 4,000 Belarusians study at the Russian universities on a budgetary basis.
There are plans to introduce the unified state exam in Minsk in 2020 in order to simplify the entrance of Belarusian school leavers to the universities of Russia. In the future this practice can be expanded to other cities of Belarus once all the corresponding issues are coordinated with the Belarusian authorities and the appropriate agencies of the two countries, the president said.More about Society
