INTO HSE: your chance to get a discount or study for free at HSE University
Before coming here, I had little knowledge of HSE Moscow. The Government Quota selection led me to this university. Now that I am a member of the large HSE family, I am grateful to be studying at one of Russia's top universities.
When I first came to HSE University, I realised that I could gain practical knowledge that I can use at work. I am in the process of learning about intercultural communication, and I feel my skills are getting better and better thanks to HSE.
The university is great, and the Pokrovka campus is brand new. The campus is located in the heart of the city, so there is a lot to do after classes. I am happy with my choice of master’s programme—my expectations have been met.
My lecturers teach with expertise, willing to pour their knowledge into us. The university assists students through peer tutors who help us navigate the courses. HSE University’s reputation is a huge benefit. The university is keen on furnishing us not only with schoolwork, but also with webinars and activities to make student life richer and fuller.
Studying at HSE University is an extraordinary opportunity. I can get knowledge from professors who are experts in their fields and network with students from various countries. I also took part in the HSE Career Marathon; HSE University really cares about the careers of each alumnus.
HSE University strives to provide students with an international environment, so the students are motivated and happy to be here. Initially, studying was hard, but not now. The teachers are very open and encourage us to ask them for help or advice.
The structure of my programme is amazing: it helps students to adapt to the rigorous nature of studies at HSE. You get to share your research and get feedback from professors and colleagues in seminars and project groups. HSE seems like a wonderland to me, where you achieve things you never thought possible.
