How to apply to several universities at the same time

The content of the article

All thoughts of high school students are occupied by the upcoming exam and entering a dream university. Every year, the requirements of universities are changing, and future students have more opportunities to apply for places in various educational institutions. Do not let everything drift away – as for final exams, you need to prepare carefully for admission.

Rules for admission to universities

Admission to the university is an exciting process, therefore, before choosing a university, you should consider a number of certain features in order to facilitate your choice of a future profession:

  • USE. Each area in advance publishes a list of exams required for admission. In general, three exams are required in different areas.
  • Passing score. For each exam, universities establish a minimum passing score required to review documents upon admission.
  • Additional tests. Some higher education institutions (for example, Moscow State University) or areas (for example, journalism) conduct their own internal exams in addition to the exam, for which the future student should prepare.
  • Individual achievements. Additional bonus points (up to 10) are awarded for a gold medal, victories at the Olympics, the golden badge of the TRP, volunteering and the successful writing of the December graduation essay.
  • The number of budget places. Do not forget that budget places in universities are designed both for applicants on a competitive basis, and for beneficiaries, olympiadnikov and target students. Therefore, the number of budget places declared by the university can be safely divided into two.
  • The specifics of the directions. Specialties with the same name in different universities have different curricula. On the websites of universities you can find published contents of the curriculum so that each applicant can get acquainted with what he will study in the next four years.
  • Payment of studies and dormitories. Before entering a university, it is necessary to evaluate the possibilities of paying for a commercial department. Nonresident students should pay attention to the hostel, information about which is easy to find on official sites or groups in social networks.


What time can I apply?

The applicant has the right to apply for admission to 5 educational institutions in three specialties. With simultaneous submission to different universities it is allowed to provide photocopies. Leave the originals for the priority specialty. If the applicant has special enrollment rights (target direction, victory at university olympiads), the corresponding copies become invalid – the originals are submitted in only one direction.

The order of admission for winners of the Olympiads

Victories at the university or all-Russian Olympiads give students the benefits of admission. It should be remembered that you can use this privilege when entering only one direction in accordance with the third paragraph of Article 71 of the Federal Law on Education.

Admission to other universities and fields is carried out on a common basis.

What documents are required for admission to a university

When choosing a university, you must personally or by mail send a package of documents to the admissions committee. In addition to the application, the form of which the applicant can find on the website of the educational institution, it will be necessary:

  • a copy of a passport or other document proving the citizenship and identity of the future student;
  • school certificate or other certificate confirming the presence of primary, secondary or higher professional education;
  • USE certificate if the applicant passed the exam;
  • a medical certificate of the established form for some specialties (medical, pedagogical);
  • 2 photos if additional entrance exams are planned;
  • registration certificate or military ID (if available).

If the applicant is underage, the parent or guardian must sign a consent to the processing of personal data, without which the documents for admission to the university will not be accepted. It is not necessary to submit only originals, especially if you plan to submit them to several educational specialties. Copy certified by a notary is not required. Some universities may require other documents (certificates of olympiads, competitions, etc.), which are specifically written on official websites.
