MOSCOW, October 3 – Novosti. The modern three-level system of higher education in Russia combines various experiences and combines various traditions with the requirements of the modern world, and it makes no sense to refuse what is good for Russia, said Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev.
At a meeting of the Presidium of the Council for Science and Education under the President of the Russian Federation, Medvedev said that the existing three-tier system combines both Western and Eastern experience, while nothing was copied blindly.
“In general, I say again, this system works, combines the traditions of the Soviet, and even pre-revolutionary higher education with the requirements of the modern world, digital reality and the latest management solutions. There is no need to make any ritual gestures to please the political situation, especially since our “friends” are constantly provoking this,” Medvedev said.
In May, the head of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, Valery Falkov , announced the country’s withdrawal from the Bologna system of the educational process. The Bologna system provides for a two-level system of education – undergraduate and graduate. The Russian system, in addition to these two levels, involves the training of specialists with a standard training period of five to six years. Russia joined this process on September 19, 2003.
