Bachelor’s and master’s programs should be preserved in the new education system that will be formed in Russia after the departure from the Bologna system, the rector of Moscow State University named after M.V. M. V. Lomonosov Viktor Sadovnichy. But, according to him, the advantage should still be with the specialist.
Now, as stated by the rector of Moscow State University, the advantage in higher education is given to bachelor’s degree. “I would think that the specialist and integrated master’s programs should be given priority, while the bachelor’s and individual master’s programs should be given a certain percentage. It would probably be wise and correct to keep all the preparation options, ”said Viktor Sadovnichy in an interview. TASS at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. At the same time, he advocated a smooth improvement in the education system and was against a “cardinal break” of what was.
Viktor Sadovnichy cited Moscow State University as an example: according to him, the university has long been teaching students according to a multivariate model. In this model, preference is given to an integrated master’s program for bachelors who want to continue their studies in their field. “This is a six-year training, where there is a single content. The specialty that we have defended is also six years old,” he said. The rector of Moscow State University also called for increasing the target numbers for admission to graduate school and making it more accessible to masters and specialists.
