If you are currently enrolled at one of HSE’s partner universities and your programme requirements allow, you can spend up to two semesters at HSE as part of your studies. Exchange students can take Russian- and English-taught courses (a full list is available here).
How it works
Please apply through the international relations or study abroad office at your home university. The exchange coordinator at your home university will then email your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following information: your name, email address, sex, field of study, study level (Bachelor’s, Master’s, or PhD), and desired semester(s) at HSE.
After HSE confirms your nomination with your home university, HSE will send you a welcome e-mail with instructions regarding the process and a link to your online profile. You will have to fill in the online profile and attach copies of the mandatory documents before the deadline.
International Students Support will then apply for an official invitation for your visa, issue an acceptance letter, walk you through how to apply for a visa, and answer any pre-departure questions that you may have.
