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.
Travelling to Russia as an international student was a safe and easy experience. Foreign students can easily move around the city and visit tourist attractions. 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.
Studying and living in Russia is amazing. I am sure that HSE is going to provide unique opportunities and crucial knowledge for my career. I feel the possibility to build my future with my hands and on my own.
I chose the Population and Development programme due to the various perspectives and methods that are taught throughout the course, and that was indeed the most exciting part about it. Even though the programme was challenging, the professors' assistance and guidance has been extremely valuable.
As an aspiring economist and statistician, I wanted to broaden my horizons and gain a global perspective in the field of economics. HSE’s reputation for excellence in economics made it the perfect choice for me.
