Almost 70% of residents of the Far Eastern Federal District are ready to pay for higher education

Almost 70% of residents of the Far Eastern Federal District are ready to pay for higher education

If necessary, 69% of the inhabitants of the Far East are ready to pay for higher education. Residents of the North Caucasus are least ready for this - 51%.

According to a survey conducted by Otkritie Bank, about 70% of Russians are ready to give their children or get paid higher education themselves. At the same time, the majority of those surveyed are sure that distance learning worsens the quality of higher education. Under no circumstances will a third of the respondents pay for their education at a university.

Most of the categorical opponents of paid universities are in the Southern Federal District and in the North Caucasus, and the least among the residents of the Far Eastern Federal District. Only 7% believe that high-quality higher education can only be obtained for money.

Despite the fact that more than two-thirds of Russians agree to pay tuition fees at universities, only about 40% consider it acceptable to take out a loan for education.

With regard to the assessment of distance higher education, more than 80% believe that the quality of education suffers at a distance. The largest share of staunch opponents of the educational distance is in St. Petersburg and the Southern Federal District.

Slightly more than a third of respondents believe that distance higher education is justified only because of the coronavirus and should be canceled after the pandemic. A proposal to prohibit online education in universities came from 28% of Russians. Only 6% of respondents consider distance higher education to be a natural consequence of the transition of many areas of life online.
