The cost of training in paid departments in Russian universities over the past year has increased by an average of 15-19%. In May, a semester of studies at a public educational institution went up to 68,9 thousand rubles, and by September, according to experts, prices will increase by another 15-20%.

As reported "News", according to Rosstat, in May of this year, studying at a university was 15% more expensive than a year ago. This is confirmed by the data of the Unified Interdepartmental Information-Statistical System. According to him, in May the semester of education in state and municipal universities on average cost 68,9 thousand rubles, and last year - in 58 thousand. In non-state universities, the cost also increased - from 46,3 thousand to 55,2 thousand rubles.

According to experts, university services are more expensive in part due to the fact that schools need to keep teachers' salaries at the level of 200% of the regional average, as indicated in the May presidential decree. The Federal Anti-Monopoly Service notes that the educational services market is competitive, so the prices for training are not subject to state regulation. At the same time, the cost of training is set by the officials: they calculate how much the student’s training in a particular specialty costs the state, and then determine the prices and contract servicemen.
