It is the third year the Russian Federation has organized the Open Doors International Olympiad. Winners and prize-winners of the Olympiad can choose any field of study from one of the subject areas of the Olympiad and one or several universities in Russia running the Master’s program of their choice.
A national of any country, except the Russian Federation (as well as any compatriot permanently residing abroad) who has a Bachelor's degree or is completing a Bachelor’s degree program in 2020, can take part in the competition.
The Olympiad includes 2 rounds that are held online. The first qualifying round is a portfolio competition. Those who have been successfully selected after the evaluation of the portfolios are invited to take part in the final round of the Olympiad. All Olympiad assignments, as well as the Master’s programs to choose from, are offered in two official languages of the Olympiad - in Russian and English.
