For a long period of time, the sphere of higher education in Russia was an extensively growing market which satisfied public demand and in addition to government funding attracted extra funds from families and private funding sources. However, the financial crisis, demographic recession, and rising instability of family incomes had a profound effect on the market of educational services. These processes have impacted the quentially-linked main stages of the educational system, which have directly led to changes in the structural components of the educational market and its transition to a shrinking market. Based on the recent researches, the paper discusses these new characteristics of the education market. Finding solutions to overcome the deficiencies of the existing vocational training system to ensure the competitiveness of graduates in the labor market, as well as the assessment of trends in social demand for higher education in Russia, are pertinent topics for this research reflecting the situation of emergence from a real crisis.
