NSU launched its admissions campaign on June 20. The University will offer 1,040 scholarship places to qualified students. The first applicants have already submitted documents to NSU. According to representatives of the NSU admissions committee, application submissions usually peak the first week of July after perspective students receive their Unified State Exam results.
Since 2018, NSU has simplified the application process. In particular, for non-residents, a new service is available that allows them to submit an application through an online personal account. A personal account provides a valuable service for those submitting their documents by mail. It saves significant time and allows the applicant to enter all the necessary information at any time and in a convenient place. In addition, this year NSU introduced an online registration service for a consultation where an applicant can sign up for an appointment to address all their issues with an admissions counselor.
Among the new specializations are “Physics Informatics” (Bachelor Degree) and Master’s Programs in “Oil and Gas Systems Modeling”, “Catalysis in Processing Carbon Raw Materials”, and “IT Geophysics”.
Novosibirsk State University has introduced special stipends of 15 thousand and 7.5 thousand rubles per month in addition to academic scholarships for applicants who have won academic competitions or have high scores in the Unified State Exam. Last year, the average Unified State Exam score for NSU’s top three fields were “African and Oriental Studies”(92.7), “Jurisprudence” (92.5), and “Linguistics” (92.4).
Currently 6,000 students study at NSU. 80% of the NSU faculty are scientists in the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The University is consistently well-ranked in prestigious international rankings and was recently rated second among higher education institutions in Russia in the QS World University Rankings.
