Application for Recognition of Foreign Credentials

Incomplete applications will not be accepted

*Required fields

If you wish to complete this form in Russian, please use the Russian application.

Foreign credentials are accepted in English or Russian. If your credentials are not in English or Russian, please have them translated into either language. Please note that after arriving at HSE, your documents will need to be officially translated into Russian.

Please be sure that the information that you enter on this page correctly corresponds with the information on your original documents and any translations.

You will need to upload scanned copies of the following documents:

1) Original foreign degree or qualification and any supplements
2) Original identity document/passport
3) Russian translation of foreign degree or qualification and any supplements
4) Russian translation of identity document/passport
The entire set of scanned documents must be uploaded as a single PDF file.

Any documents that are in English may be submitted without a Russian translation.

You may also submit any additional evidence of training by attaching scanned documents that confirm your participation. If these documents are not in English or Russian, they should also be accompanied by a translation into either language.

Low-quality and non-readable document scans are not accepted and will delay the recognition process. If this is the case, we will notify the applicant by email.

A preliminary decision on recognition will be sent to the email address indicated in the application.

The final decision on recognition will be made after the scans have been verified against the original documents.
