Budget places in universities will be increased for applicants under the age of 35

Higher educational institutions of Russia will increase the number of budget places for applicants under the age of 35. The initiative will help one million Russians get free higher education.

As reported "News" with reference to the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Education and Science Maxim Zaitsev, such a bill will be submitted for consideration today. The author of the document explains his initiative by the fact that earlier the upper limit of the age of young people in the Russian Federation was increased from 30 to 35 years. He pointed out that the increased age is not taken into account in the law on education, while the number of budget places in accordance with the new norms should be increased. According to the law, the number of budget places for students is calculated as 800 for every ten thousand people.

Funding from the state budget for one place is about 100 thousand rubles a year, more than 100 billion rubles will be required to provide education for another million students.

Most factions of the State Duma supported the initiative. Experts also agree that such a bill should be passed. According to Maxim Zaitsev, the demand for higher education among this category of the population is very high, so the initiative will be in demand.

At the end of last year, the State Duma adopted in the third, final reading, the law on raising the age of youth up to 35 years old inclusive. Previously, youth were considered people from 14 to 30 years old.
