21%

of students at occupational training schools plan to continue their education in universities, including in full-time divisions. 

Moreover, almost half of the graduates of these schools do not make a connection between their immediate future and any kind of study. They plan on getting a job (32%), serving in the army (17%) or doing nothing at all (5%).

The situation has changed dramatically in recent years. As recently as five years ago, more than 70% of those graduating from occupational training schools did not plan on studying further.

These data were obtained during a survey of Russian families that was conducted as part of a Monitoring of Education Markets and Organizations (MEMO) study carried out by the Higher School of Economics in cooperation with the Public Opinion Foundation.  A newsletter on the research will be published in late 2014.
