The University of Tyumen is engaged in the second stage of selection. 

This means that UTMN only reviews applications that have passed the first stage, which is Rossotrudnichestvo’s selection process. 

At the first stage of selection, depending on the country, it may be necessary to pass an interview with representatives of Rossotrudnichestvo or a consular office of the Russian Federation, as well as to pass a qualifying examination test. Many foreign countries distribute scholarships independently and collect the approved candidates’ applications and other paperwork when preparing for the second stage.

Once the application has been approved, the candidate will receive an educational invitation, which allows him to be enrolled in the university of their choice without additional exams. Through the candidates can request a student visa at the Russian Embassy.

Note for applicants who have failed or chose not to apply for a government scholarship consider self-funding option. Education and living costs in Russia compared to the U.S. or Europe rates are significantly lower.

Self-financed studies
