Note: At present, two educational subsystems are being realized in Russian universities: one-stage basic educational programs for the training of graduates, primarily focused on practical production activities, and two-level basic educational programs in the fields of bachelor’s and master’s training that have a research and pedagogical orientation. If at the beginning of the 90s bachelor’s training was carried out on the scarcely qualified specialties of lawyers, economists, managers, now the preparation for the opening of bachelor’s directions in the field of technical and many other educational programs is being conducted. Several years ago, Russia ratified the Lisbon Convention, which was signed in 1999, but did not take any possible steps to implement it. In particular, we clearly do not distinguish the concepts of academic and professional qualifications, which is of fundamental importance in the transition to a multi-level system of higher education. According to this convention, an academic qualification is a document issued at the end of a higher education institution, and the entry in this document indicates professional qualifications that may or may not be present in the document. Nevertheless, today in our country there is a number of higher educational institutions actively participating in the reforms of the Bologna process. In the Moscow State University. M.V. Lomonosov is implementing a two-stage (from economists) and traditional one-stage training with a training period of up to six years (for physicists). At the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, training cadres for the RAS and for foreign elite research centers, there has always been a two-stage training program. In 1994, the Pomor State University accumulated experience of multi-level training at the Humanities Faculty.
