FAQ
1
What does 'Subject' mean?
Subject is the field of knowledge that covers groups of program tracks a Master's student can follow. The area of science you would like to specialize in, to be short.
2
What do I do if I win?
First, select a program in the Subject you are a winner in. Then, choose one or several universities that offer programs in this track.
3
What language will I study in?
After confirming your proficiency in English or Russian, you can study in that language. If you need to improve your Russian, you will be offered a Russian language preparatory course.
4
Will I have to pay a tuition fee?
Your tuition fee will be paid by the Russian Federation. You will only have to cover your travel and accommodation costs, insurance and personal expenses.
5
Can I enroll in any programme I want?
You will be enrolled in a specialization indicated in your registration form. Within this specialization you can choose any programme applicable for foreign students.
6
Do you have bachelor degree scholarships?
No. The competition is only open to people possessing a Bachelor's degree or completing a Bachelor degree program in the year of the Olympiad for the Master's track and possessing a Master's or Specialist's degree for the doctoral track (analogous to Ph.D.) in the year of the Olympiad.
7
Can I add/change tracks and/or subject areas when the Olympiad has already started?
You can do it only before stage 1 ends, and only while you still haven’t submitted the portfolio. Every new subject area requires a separate motivational letter.
8
I took part in the Olympiad last year. Why can’t I access my account on the Open Doors website?
Your account has been deleted. Every year you have to create the account as well as fill in your personal info and your portfolio anew.
9
Which documents will I need for the first stage?
Only motivational letter and education level proof are required. Without providing them, you won’t be able to submit your portfolio and take part in the second stage. Consequently, you’ll lose the opportunity to become a winner/prize-winner and get a scholarship through Open Doors. The motivational letter must be typed (or copied and then pasted from a document) into the corresponding form. Educational documents are uploaded to the corresponding fields. To take part in the Olympiad, after registering on the website it is necessary to log in, click Fill in portfolio, fill in the motivational letter, upload the documents and submit the portfolio. The degree is your main educational document (bachelor’s to participate in master’s track, magister’s or specialist’s to participate in the doctoral track). If you haven’t yet received your degree or haven’t got it available for any other reason, you can upload your official transcript, last or current year’s statement of marks, a scan of your grade sheet or other documents confirming your level of education. In this case you’ll have to provide the degree later, when getting admitted in the university. All other document that you can upload are optional. But their presence might boost the maximum score you’ll be able to get after stage 1.
10
What should be written in the motivational letter? Where can I find guidelines for writing it?
You are free to write it how you see fit. There are no forms or algorithms, which means what you write can’t be right or wrong. The more clearly and logically you describe your motivation for taking part in the Olympiad – the better. But it’s only up to you to decide how exactly to do it.
11
Can I participate in multiple subject areas?
You can participate in all subject areas simultaneously if you want to – all subject area exams are scheduled for different days. But eventually you’ll still have to choose only one subject area for your studies, and within it - a single program in a single university.
12
Are notarized copies of the documents obligatory?
Not during the first stage. When you are filling in the portfolio, only certified translations are required (which is not the same thing as notarized). However, after the Olympiad is over, if you become a winner or a prize-winner, you’ll have to find a certified professional to translate your documents and then get the translation notarized in the Russian Embassy/Consulate or at any public notary’s office.
13
What do I do if I can’t submit my portfolio?
That’s most likely because you didn’t fill one or both required fields – the motivational letter and educational documents. If there is some other problem – contact us via our social media pages, email or the feedback form on the website. Your message must be accompanied with a screenshot or a video of your screen where we can clearly see your problem.
14
What are the criteria of portfolio scoring?
The criteria differ depending on the subject area. Maximum possible score for every achievement category is displayed in a participant’s personal account as the portfolio is being filled in.
15
Can I edit/update my portfolio after it has been submitted?
No. This can only be done within the duration of stage 1 and only before you have submitted your portfolio. There is absolutely no way to edit or update your portfolio after it has been submitted.
16
Is it required to submit documental proof of my Russian/English language skills?
No. There is no need to confirm your language skills with certificates or anything else. Your Russian/English knowledge is not evaluated in the portfolio, participants don’t get any points for it. When you choose the language after registering, it’s the language of PARTICIPATION in the Olympiad that you are choosing, meaning the language of your account’s interface, mailouts and the language you’ll be taking your exams in. The language of STUDIES in Russia in one’s chosen master’s/doctoral program is selected by winners/prize-winners after the Olympiad is over. The study language doesn’t have to be the same as the language of participation.
17
How do I contact you in case I have a question or a problem?
If you can’t find the answer on this page as well as on About, Rules, Universities, Tracks, Subjects and Schedule pages - contact us via our social media pages, email or the feedback form on the website. If possible, your message should be accompanied with a screenshot or a video of your screen where we can clearly see your problem. IMPORTANT: it generally takes an average of 24 hours to process a message. Do not use various channels to send the same messages. By doing so you are only delaying the answer because we have to take additional time to process identical messages. Besides that, by asking the same questions multiple times you are preventing us from answering other participants who need help just like you.
18
I have a mistake in my personal info, how do I fix it?
After completing the registration you won’t be able to change your personal info yourself. If you need something edited, contact us via our social media pages, email or the feedback form on the website email or the feedback form on the website. We’ll check your situation and make the change ourselves if the Rules allow it.
19
Can you advise me on which university to choose?
No. You’ll have to find info on the universities yourself – on their pages on our website as well as on their official websites, social media and elsewhere. We also publish the most important info on our own social media pages.
20
Why am I choosing six universities instead of one?
Just in case. You can choose fewer. In any case, the final choice of the program and the university will have to be made again after you win the Olympiad. This is when you’ll be able to change your first choice.
21
I disagree with my grading/jury’s decision. Can I appeal it?
Only after stage 2. Appeals are not allowed after stages 1 and 3. Results of those stages are final, they are not commented on or discussed. Appeal process is regulated by the Rules of the Olympiad found on our website. Appeals are made from your personal account where you will also see the results after the appeal is processed. IMPORTANT: The appeal period includes not only submission, but also processing of the appeals. Deadline marked in the Schedule is the deadline of publishing the appeal RESULTS. To SUBMIT the appeal, you have only TWO DAYS after stage 2 results are published.
22
I successfully completed stage 1. How do I register for stage 2?
In your personal account on our website. After stage 1 ends we’ll send you an email with detailed instructions. These instructions, together with the Rules of stage 2, will also be available in your personal account within a few days after stage 1 ends. While registering for stage 2, it is most crucial not to miss the deadline. If you don’t register in time, you won’t be able to take your exam.
23
What am I allowed/not allowed to use during the exam? What files are allowed as answers and how do I upload them?
Detailed info about it can be found in the instructions and stage 2 Rules. Those documents will be available in your personal account after stage 1 ends. In any case, the use of any mobile devices during of the exam is prohibited. You can use clean paper and a calculator (including the one included in your computer’s software – but not an online one!), but all your actions with them must be clearly visible through your webcam at all times. How to upload files with answers (if it is needed) is always described in the task itself. You need to do exactly as the task says. Any other action will be considered a violation of the Rules and may lead to the annulment of your result. We also remind you that it is not allowed to leave the room while the exam lasts. No other people must also be present.
24
Something went wrong, and I wasn’t able to take part in my stage 2 exam on its date. Can I try again?
Inform us about that as soon as possible. We’ll give you an additional attempt on a reserve day if the Rules allow it in your case. For this attempt you’ll also have to register before a deadline.
25
I wasn’t able to take part in stage 2, but my portfolio was evaluated highly. Do I have a chance to win your scholarship?
No. Participation in stage 2 exam is required to win the Opens Doors scholarship. No matter how many points you might get for stage 1, you won’t get the scholarship if you don’t take part in the exam.
26
I have a problem with installing/connecting the proctoring software. What do I do?
Follow the instructions found in your personal account on our website. If it doesn’t help, contact the software tech support. Most problems are caused by unstable Internet connection. It’s best to have a wire connection. Mobile and Wi Fi connections often are unstable even when they are fast.
27
I wasn’t able to start/finish the exam because of the technical issues. What do I do?
Inform us about that as soon as possible. We’ll give you an additional attempt on a reserve day if the Rules allow it in your case. For this attempt you’ll also have to register before a deadline. IMPORTANT: the number of additional attempts is limited. Your computer and Internet connection must fit the technical requirement, and only you are responsible for ensuring this. Take care of it in advance.
28
What is included in your scholarship? What do I have to pay for and what is free?
We cover tuition fees and a monthly stipend. All other expenses (travel, food, accommodation, communication services, medical insurance) are on you, but accommodation in the universities is usually very cheap. We cover the organizing universities and their accommodations regularly on our social media pages. For more detailed info contact the university you are interested in.
29
How much is the monthly stipend?
Amount varies depending on the university. For more detailed info contact the university you are interested in.
30
Can I work during my studies?
Yes, you can work remotely or in person, and you don’t even need the Russian work permit. Many universities will help you find a job. Sometimes there are vacancies right on campus. These matters are regularly covered on our social media pages. For more detailed info contact the university you are interested in.
31
What is the difference between winners and prize-winners? What do the former and the latter get?
Winners and prize-winners are two different categories: winners get a quota for free tuition and a monthly stipend. Prize-winners get tuition discounts and/or other benefits (for more detailed info contact the university you are interested in). Additionally, some prize-winners may get the quota for free education if some winners aren’t able to come to Russia for some reason. Which prize-winners are selected to replace winners who are not coming is determined by the board at the end of the Olympiad, based on the ratings after stages 1 and 2, fullness of the uploaded documents pack and the availability of free quotas due to winners not submitting their documents. Lists of prize-winners who get the quotas are not commented on or discussed.
32
I wasn’t able to become a winner/prize-winner of the Olympiad. Is there any other way to get your scholarship?
The universities might offer you some alternative possibilities of admission. We know nothing of such initiatives, meaning you can discuss them only directly with the university. In any case, those possibilities will have no relation to the Open Doors scholarship, which is impossible to get if you’re not the Olympiad winner/prize-winner. If you weren’t able to become a winner/prize-winner, we recommend trying again next year or look at other ways to get the Russian Government scholarship. Rossotrudnichestvo is one of them.
33
I wasn’t able to complete my exam because of the technical difficulties (including with the proctoring software). It was not my fault. What do I do?
We can’t help you in this case. Your computer and Internet connection must fit the technical requirement, and only you are responsible for ensuring this. We’ll give you as many additional attempts as we can. Besides that, the tech support is always available (both ours and the proctoring software’s). If they weren’t able to help you – most likely the problem is on your side and there’s nothing we can do. Every stage of the Olympiad has deadlines, and we can’t shift them because of individual participants.
34
How do I choose the university when I’m a doctoral track participant?
Olympiad winners of the doctoral track choose potential scientific advisors instead of universities. When a mentor and a winner choose each other, the winner will do research in the university where the mentor works.
35
Can I get a certificate of the Olympiad’s participant?
There are no certificates for participants who didn’t become winners/prize-winners. For winners/prize-winners, their certificates are available in their personal accounts after the Olympiad ends. It’s best to download the certificate right away – if you need it next year, it will no longer be available.
36
I’m the Olympiad winner/prize-winner, and the originals of my documents are in English. Can I send them as they are, without getting the notarized Russian translation?
No. The documents must be translated into Russian and notarized. The Russian law requires it from those who apply for a student visa.
