HSE is a place of top-quality study and research. It is a young and renowned dynamic university with global connections and incredible opportunities for using the resources of its international partners.

Dozens of distinguished international teachers and researchers work at HSE. Eminent professors from all over the world head HSE international laboratories. The rapidly growing contingent of international students is transforming HSE`s student community into a highly talented multicultural community. Many of them come to HSE to get hands-on experience on the emerging markets of Eurasia. At HSE, non-Russian speakers find a comfortable language environment - HSE students and faculty speak English, and many of them also speak other European or Asian languages.

We are looking forward to seeing you join the HSE family! 

A word from our experts

Victory in the national contest of research universities is not like a victory in the Olympic Games or a world championship. Those victories are the culmination of a career: they allow the winner to get a prize, a material reward, to rest on his or her laurels and, for example, open a school for young figure skaters or athletes. Our victory, and maybe it might sound pompous, forces us to start a new cycle of development, to publicly set ourselves goals by which the state and society at large will judge us. The future of our country largely depends on the existence of modern research universities. That's why the HSE has, on one hand, gained a very honourable position, and on the other hand, faces very difficult tasks.

Isak Froumin, Academic Supervisor of the HSE Institute for the Development of Education


A word from our students

Moscow is a wonderful city with everything to offer to an interested intellect – beautiful sites and museums reflecting different historical and cultural periods, stores, fashion, food, and of course the enchanting Russian language. Bohemian tearooms and upscale and ethnic restaurants share neighbourhoods with pubs, shops and small businesses. Entertainment in the form of theatre and concerts is of course easy to find, ranging from local to regional and international talents. Interesting and inexpensive DJ and live music shows are just around the corner from Myasnitskaya Street at the Bilingua Café.
