The rising cost of education in many universities in 2015 will significantly exceed the average inflation rate. Some universities openly set their services' price in dollars and euros. Others focus on currency equivalent. In the nearest future Russian universities will announce the tuition cost for the 2015-2016 academic year. For many students new prices can be intimidating.
Price of one tuition student's training may change with allowance for inflation rate – 5.5%
"The cost of tuition students training in the new academic year is likely to change to the official assumed inflation in 2015 - that is by 5.5%", commented on the situation to "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" the expert of the Analytical Center Tatiana Yuzhakova.
The Ministry of Education and Science reassures citizens making references to the fact that the cost of services in institutions of higher education is set in rubles and its relation to exchange rates is not critical. For the majority of students who have already signed apprenticeship contracts tuition fees will not change. However some universities provide with contracts with indexation fees in accordance with inflation.
