What documents are required to participate in the first stage?

Mandatory documents are a document on education or an academic certificate and a motivation letter. Without providing these documents, you will not be able to submit your portfolio for review and take part in the second stage. You can complete the portfolio design ahead of schedule and report it through the feedback form. Try to add as many documents as possible confirming achievements in the Profile - this can increase your personal maximum score. PAY ATTENTION: in order to take part in the Olympiad, after registration, you must log into your account, fill out a portfolio, upload documents and send a portfolio for verification. The main document of education is a bachelor's/specialist's diploma. If you haven't completed your degree yet, or don't have it in hand for any reasons, you can upload an academic transcript, a scan of your grade book, or other documents confirming your level of education. In this case, the diploma will have to be provided later, when enrolling in the university.

What to write in a motivation letter?

A motivation letter is drawn up in free form. The clearer and more logical you state why you decided to take part in the Olympics, the better. How exactly to do this is up to you.

Translations of documents confirming personal achievements (certificates, etc.) are not required.
After the end of the Olympiad, if you are a winner or prize-winner, you will definitely need translations of documents into Russian, certified by the Russian embassy / consulate or any public notary.
