I appreciate the opportunity to study at HSE, as it is one of the most prestigious universities in Russia. HSE University has the best environment to help me grow academically. Education is serious here and requires a lot from students to pass subjects, which in turn motivates me to study harder.

HSE University has become not only a university for me, but also a home, a special place where I met my wife and countless good friends from all over the world.
Life in the dormitory at HSE has been an extensive and immersive experience, allowing me to embrace cultural diversity on a whole new level. Sharing meals, celebrating festivals, and engaging in cultural exchanges made every day a memorable experience, and it felt like a global community within the dormitory walls.
