International students can apply to study at HSE for free through full-tuition scholarships. This merit-based scholarship will completely waive all tuition fees for select full-degree Bachelor's and Master's programmes at HSE.
Applicants should apply to the programmes they wish to enter and indicate whether they are applying for a scholarship (in the case that scholarships are available for their chosen programs). If the application is considered to be outstanding by the application committee, the applicant will be recommended for a scholarship.
Please note that scholarships cover only the cost of tuition (210,000 - 370,000 rubles) and that all other costs (including accomidation at HSE dormitories) must be covered by the student. Information about the estimated cost of living can be found here.
