This year in Zaporozhye, as well as in all country, the new introductory system in higher education institutions debuted. Rectors declared that probably it is necessary to close correspondence departments as many wishing to arrive on such form of education didn't know that it is necessary to pass test previously. Or couldn't ask for leave at work. The same who handed over tests successfully, hardly will go to "zaochka". At the end of August introductory campaign on such offices ended. So it is already possible to sum up the results.
The number of "diaries" grew
One of the biggest sets on the budgetary places in Zaporozhye passed in "machine" - the Zaporozhye national technical university. On a full-time department 1867 people, from them 1017 on the budgetary places arrived. And here on a correspondence department of entrants was less, than last year: about 500 people.
- Frankly speaking, there were fears that correspondence students will be even less, but they didn't come true, the responsible secretary of the selection committee of ZNTU Victor Greshta admitted to us. - Though in comparison with previous year on the first course of a correspondence department 30% less students arrived.
Such specialties, as economy, finance and audit, the international relations, tourism, computer networks and systems, technology of mechanical engineering enjoyed special popularity. On these faculties competition reached 78 people on one place.
According to Victor Greshta, the question of closing of faculties wasn't brought up at all, after all they executed the state order.
