Undergraduate education

Bachelor’s degree is an academic degree, which is got by a student of a higher education institution upon the confirmation of knowledge within a chosen speciality. This qualification confirms that a person has a basic higher education, and feels confident in a speciality.

According to the legislation, the Bachelor degree provides a citizen a right to hold a position, where a diploma of higher education requested. Among them: frontline executives of various economic and social realms (managers, administrators, journalists, engineers, etc.).

Duration of training for 11-years secondary schools graduates is not less than 4 years. Individuals, who have graduated from a 12-year schools or a college, will be able to study at a short-term undergraduate program (3 years).

Bachelor's degree is awarded after passing successfully a defense of thesis.

Having finished an undergraduate programme, a graduate gets a general fundamental and general technical skills and knowledge which are necessary for professional problems.

One of the biggest advantages of this level of training is that the bachelor’s degree gives enough opportunity for employment. Due to the absence of narrow specialization and focus on vocational training of graduates, which is brought more in line with the real conditions of work, a graduate may change the profession just over a year. By comparison, specialist’s degree holders need over 2-2,5 years to get a new speciality.

Bachelor's degree opens up more opportunities for employment abroad, because in contrast to "graduate specialist", a bachelor's degree has been accepted by the international classification and it is understandable to employers around the world.

But there is a peculiarity: a bachelor's degree does not give the right to enter post-graduate schools at Russian higher education institutions. For this it is necessary to continue education and move on to the next stage: Master's degree or specialist's degree.

Draft deferment for young men is over immediately at the end of the course.
