of upper-class students at Russian universities have experience combining employment and studies.
One third of students reported that they have worked under temporary contracts, and one fifth has held irregular or one-off jobs. Most commonly, however, is steady employment.
This information comes from research conducted by Sergey Roshchin, Head of the Laboratory for Labour Market Studies, and Viktor Rudakov, an analyst at the laboratory. Their report is called ‘Combining Studies and Employment by Russian University Students.’
The most active students were found in the fields of design, architecture, cultural studies, mathematics, programming, IT, and the social sciences. Students pursuing specializations in agriculture and the natural sciences were the least likely to combine employment with their studies.
