An admission company has begun in Russian universities, but the forecasts for a new flow of applicants to educational institutions are disappointing. Some universities predict a decrease in the number of paying students at 75%.

As they write "News”, This year the number of applicants may decrease dramatically due to coronovirus restrictions. Due to lower incomes of almost all families, 75% fewer student students are expected this year. In general, this will lead to a decrease of 46% in all applicants to universities, especially from other cities. Graduates from small towns will stay closer to home because of cheaper life, and lower travel costs and other expenses. It will be difficult for foreign students to come.

Moreover, according to a joint survey of the Maximum Education educational company and the “Navigator of admission” portal, 42% of universities expect weaker students. Experts most often associated a low level of knowledge with distance learning at school. And according to estimates by Viktor Bolotov, academic director of the Center for Monitoring the Quality of Education at the Higher School of Economics, about a quarter of graduates didn’t really study distance learning.
