USAA enrolls more than 240 new students for 2014-15 school year

The Ural State Academy of Architecture and Arts (USAA) announced last Monday that it has completed its admissions process for the 2014-2015 academic year.

USAAA has enrolled 80 new undergraduate students to its School of Architecture, 115 students to its School of Design and 51 students to its Institute of Fine Arts. Each of these students will have their educations subsidized entirely by the Russian Ministry of Education due to their high qualifications and academic performance in secondary school.

An additional 300 students have been admitted into USAAA's undergraduate programs, but will have to pay for their tuition.

In total, USAAA received more than 2,500 applications for undergraduate enrollment from students across Russia. The majority of applicants were residents of the Sverdlovsk region. However, USAAA noted a dramatic increase in applications this year from students from the Chelyabinsk, Kurgan, Tyumen and Khanty-Mansiysk regions as well as from from the Yurga and Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District, Bashkortostan and from the neighboring countries of Kazakhstan and Uzebekistan.

Meanwhile, 90 graduate students have been admitted to USAAA's fully-subsidized Master in Architecture and Master in Design programs.
