The bachelor’s diploma is already evidence of higher education. You can immediately get an enviable position in the United States. The “master” degree is oriented more toward the improvement of knowledge, and the last stage is a doctor of philosophy, which allows teaching and conducting research activities. A similar scheme began to be introduced in the Russian Federation at the beginning of the twenty-first century. However, unfortunately, the national bachelor's degree is still perceived by many members of society as an incomplete education. Employees of human resources departments of large corporations are reluctant to take a bachelor's degree for a post that requires an applicant with higher education.

For training at the university they pass tests (GRE, GMAT, SAT). You need to get a high score for them, as well as have a high-quality letter justifying the uniqueness of your candidacy. To study for free, you need to worry about a scholarship or grant in advance.

Outstanding athletes are trained for free. In the United States, sports scholarships are paid, but only one year. You can extend the scholarship after the end of the season if the athlete improves his initial performance.

There is no stable division of students into groups. The main disciplines for the future specialty are taught in the 3rd and 4th courses.

There are 2 basic programs for the preparation of masters:

  • for professional fields;
  • for students planning to continue their studies in graduate school and devote themselves to science.

Upon admission to a magistracy, a diploma of higher education is required.

  • Graduate school
