"I chose ICEF as a personal challenge. I was always eager to compete with hard-working students. When I was an HSE exchange student, I had a chance to talk with a person who currently studies at ICEF. I found double degree program and lectures taught in English very attractive. So, I just decided to take a chance and enroll in ICEF. First, when I joined this program, I thought it would be easier than I expected. But this turned out to be my delusion. Every course requires a lot of time for self-study. It makes me choose what to do and what to give up. It is very difficult to find time both for study and leisure. This is the reason why ICEF is challenging. However, I believe that after all difficulties, there would be a promising future".

“I had three reasons to go to ICEF. First of all, it is the fact that ICEF confers two diplomas: one of HSE and one of University of London. It is very prestigious. Second, all programs are taught in English, on a very high level, that is very useful for academic career. And third, the results of my exams were good enough to get maximum discount for the tuition fees”.

“When you enter ICEF it is important to know that you need to continue studying, to define your own goals and go towards them in order to stay a leader. Talking about the teaching staff, it is to be mentioned, that every teacher can bring something more or less useful to the student. It can happen, that a way in which material is being presented does not suit you. But you can always look for a person of your own in the teaching staff – as for me, I have already found the teachers who help me develop myself”.

"Initially I chose to become a student of ICEF because it was the only economics program in Moscow that was taught in English. I've always wanted to study in a foreign language and I'm grateful to ICEF for providing this international experience within the borders of our country. However, ICEF went beyond expectations. It's a faculty filled with far-reaching ambition, a persisting sense of purpose and brilliant minds. Being a part of this incredible community motivates you to face new challenges and conquer greater heights every day. ICEF gives everything necessary for achieving success: a well-developed online system, availability of a wide range of resources and professional teachers that guide students through the tough course material".
