The list of specialties and the volume of admission of applicants to higher educational institutions on the basis of grants from the state for 2018/19 academic year was approved. The Information Support Department of the Government’s Executive Office reported.

At least 5,705 state educational grants were provided for the forthcoming academic year. At the same time, 4,903 budget-funded places were allocated for the higher educational institutions, subordinated to the Ministry of Education and Science. The remaining state-funded places will be financed through other state bodies, taking into account the existing need for personnel and the analysis of the employment of the graduates.
