vector quotes Students admitted based on the results of Olympiads are usually successful at university. They have a special skill of "Olympiad participants": a system approach to acquisition of large volumes of new information. Such students are motivated, interested in the knowledge area they have been studying in depth since their schooldays. They know the worth of their time at university, so they usually find scientific supervisors as early as in their first or second year with a view to a future graduation certificate or even thesis. Many of students admitted to SFedU based on the results of the Olympiads held over the past years participate in the projects of the Russian Science Foundation. There are also those who win the grants of the President of the Russian Federation and manage their own projects already, e.g. as part of the Postgraduate Studies competition held by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research.
