This has been informed by the press service of the Ministry of Education with reference to the Deputy Director of the Department of Higher Education Ministry Nikolai Fomenko.
"Top five leading higher educational institutions, judging by the number of applications submitted for the entire period of the entering campaign, haven’t changed much.

We remind that this year there have been 320 thousand school leavers, and in 2011 - only 190 thousand, mainly due to the change in school terms.
According to the State Statistics, in 2011, 315 thousand people entered universities. The maximum number of students was accepted to universities in 2006 - 508 thousand. In 2010 there were already 392 thousand of them due to the changes in the demographic situation in the early 1990s.
