The first course is implemented by the faculty of world economy and international affairs, it consists of core curriculum disciplines and at the same time is preparing students for admission to the University of London. To do this, first-year students must pass the exams, as well as IELTS * for 6 or more points.
The undergraduate degree program at the University of London lasts three years. Following the four years of study at the International Relations program and after successfully passing the final examinations, diplomas of two universities are awarded - HSE and the University of London.
In the first year, students choose to study a foreign language (in addition to English). They are offered a choice of European and Oriental languages (for more on teaching, see Foreign Languages). In previous years, the most popular languages were Spanish, German and Chinese. There are also groups in French, Italian and Japanese. However, with a sufficient number of interested students, groups in Turkish, Hebrew, Hindi and other foreign languages may also be opened.
An integral part of the program are disciplines of specialization, where students acquire practical skills related to international studies and a future profession in the field of international relations, with an emphasis on the predominantly corporate sector. The choice of specialization occurs after the first course. Currently, students are offered two specializations: International Economics and Business and International Politics and Public Relations. See Specializations for details.
