At the beginning of May, the editorial board of the website StudyinRussia.ru organized a survey among the followers of its social network groups.
According to the results, the most important factor is whether or not the future profession is in demand in the market (33.8% of respondents). The second most popular response was the prestige of the future profession (22.5%). And in third place – the students’ parents’ opinion – 19.7%.
Other important factors mentioned were: the reputation of a university, the language in which the lectures are delivered, the possibility of getting a government scholarship. Students are much less concerned with which exams you need to take to get accepted, how long the training will last, and what their friends might think of their choice.
