PERSONAL PORTFOLIO

Talented prospective students’ personal portfolio is taken into account

This year RUDN University carries out admissions of foreign citizens to the bachelor’s / master’s / specialist’s and postgraduate programmes on a competitive basis taking into account the assessment of the portfolio presented by a foreign applicant. The GPA with a focus on the results in major for the future specialty subjects, participation in competitions in major subjects, recommendations from RUDN University, nongovernmental organizations, associations of Russian and foreign institutions will be taken into account. To be enrolled in master’s and postgraduate programmes the positions in the world rankings of the university where the applicant obtained a previous degree will be taken into account. Scientific articles and a motivation letter are required to be enrolled in postgraduate programmes.

Thus, at RUDN University, the portfolio of an international prospective student is considered according to the following criteria:

GPA of the previous level of education, including the score in major subjects
participation in competitions in major for the chosen field of study / specialty disciplines
recommendations (or other analogous documents) from nongovernmental organizations, associations, Russian foreign missions, establishments, etc.
position of the university, whose education certificate the applicant submits when being enrolled, in the world rankings (for master’s and postgraduate programmes)
scientific articles (for postgraduate programmes)
motivation letter (for postgraduate programmes)

The contribution of each selection criterion to the overall ranking of a candidate is determined by the Admissions Office upon recommendation of the President of the Admissions Office.
