Foreign Students in the Higher Educational Institutions of Russia
Aref'ev, A. L.
Russian Education and Society, v47 n9 p38-53 Sep 2005
In the next few years, higher educational institutions in Russia are going to have difficulties recruiting applicants for enrollment owing to the decline of the country's population and the reduced number of young people. One of the most important indicators of the effectiveness of the educational process and the level of competitiveness of the country's institutions of higher learning in the international market for educational services is the quality of the professional training of foreign students. This task has been rendered more difficult because Russian college diplomas have not been recognized in many countries and foreign students are selective in terms of educational careers. To this effect, Russia joined the Bologna Convention on Higher Education so that in the near future Russian college and university diplomas will be recognized in Europe and internationally. In this article, a survey conducted by the Center for Sociological Research of the Russian Ministry of Education, commissioned by the Administration of International Education and Cooperation (the survey included 2,784 students from 123 countries who are enrolled in the daytime divisions of 127 institutions in thirty cities of Russia), examined basic tendencies in Russia's higher education with respect to the training of cadres for foreign countries. (Contains 4 figures and 5 notes.)
