    How does one choose the most suitable programme? Is it difficult for first-year students to become acclimated at HSE University? Nikita Anisimov, HSE University Rector, answered these and other questions on the eve of the university-wide Open Day for prospective students of bachelor's and specialist programmes.

  • ‘If You Can Show that You Are Willing to Speak Russian, People Are So Friendly’

    Jiayi Xu is a first-year student of the Master’s in Comparative Social Research at HSE University in Moscow. Having now spent five months living and studying in Moscow, Jiayi shares her thoughts about life in Moscow so far, her love of visiting the library, and the differences between education in China, the US, and Russia.

  • AI Assists with Fact-Checking: HSE Scientists Streamline Information Verification

    Specialists at the HSE AI Research Centre have developed an AI-powered fact-checking assistant. This software solution will improve the quality of working with information, reduce the risks of errors and biases, and save both time and resources. A notable advantage of the program lies in its capability to process a wide variety of statement types.

  • Imprint: An Open Competition for Photographers

    The ‘Photography’ educational track of the HSE Art and Design School is launching an online magazine called Imprint. The magazine will focus on collecting, summarising, and making sense of information about modern photography in Russia. The school will support talented photographers and offer them a platform for creating, developing, and uniting.

  • HSE Creates Centre for South Arabian Studies

    The new centre will operate as part of the HSE Institute of Oriental and Classical Studies, and its flagship project will focus on the study of the language and oral folklore of Socotra Island. The centre is a trilateral international partnership between HSE University, the RAS Institute of Oriental Studies, and a consortium of universities in the UAE. 

  • ‘Everyone Quickly Engaged in Conversations and Demonstrated Their Creative Thinking’

    The online Russian Speaking Club opened only a month ago, but has seen a rapid growth in the number of participants. Every week, the club holds free online meetings where participants and a Russian language tutor discuss various topics related to the Russian language and culture. Below, the club leaders share their impressions and plans, which include going offline.

  • Moscow and St Petersburg Rank among Global Leaders in Spatial and Technological Development

    HSE experts, in collaboration with researchers from China and India, have participated in the development of the Urban & Innovation Environment Index, a global ranking of cities.

  • Scientists Harness 'Liquid Light' to Induce Electric Current in Superconductors

    Scientists at HSE MIEM have induced a superconducting current using 'liquid light,' or excitonic polaritons, which are hybrid particles formed by interaction between light and matter and possess the properties of both light and material particles. The ability to manipulate an electrical system through an optical one can be valuable in the development of technologies such as quantum computers. The study has been published in Physical Review B.
