HSE School of Psychology Moves to Centre of Moscow

The School of Psychology has moved to Armyansky Pereulok, which was a long-awaited event for HSE psychology students. The school was previously located at one of the university’s more remote campuses on Volgogradsky Prospekt. The HSE Centre for Cognition & Decision Making also made an important move recently, this time into the university’s building on Krivokolenny Pereulok. Below we show and discuss where and how HSE students will be learning starting this September.

Where Future Lawyers Study

A piano in the cafeteria, photographs of fingerprints and Malevich prints on the walls – these are the types of interiors that law students of the Higher School of Economics are accustomed to. In the latest edition of the Open House Project, third-year undergraduate law students Alyona Geraschenko and Baira Bembeeva take us on an excursion to the Faculty of Law.

HSE St. Petersburg’s Dorm Voted Best in Russia for 2017

Where Mathematicians Are Made

This summer, the HSE Faculty of Mathematics moved into a new building on Usacheva Street. As part of the Open House project, two HSE students – Petr Ogarok, a second-year student in the Mathematics programme, and Anastasia Matveeva, a first-year master’s student in the Mathematics and Mathematical Physics programme – gave an excursion around the new building.

HSE to Build Sport Complex in Moscow

HSE will build a three-story fitness complex near the Kaluzhskaya metro stop in Moscow, adding to the university’s sports and recreation infrastructure.

Let’s see what the city’s Chief Architect Sergey Kuznetsov had to say about HSE’s new addition.

Student-run television studios, artwork, effective advertising examples, and walls with headlines from Kommersant – these are just a few of the things discussed during an Open House excursion around the buildings where students specialising in media and communications study.

A Virtual Tour of HSE MIEM

How does one enter into virtual reality? How many hours does it take a 3D printer to print a bust of Van Gogh? And is it true that in one of HSE’s laboratories, you can monitor low Earth orbit satellites in real time? In the newest edition of Open House, Anastasia Zaitseva and Artem Ivanov, both fourth-year students in the Informatics and Computing Technology undergraduate programme, talk about these questions and more.

Where Programmers Become Programmers

What are Euclid and Descartes doing in a building that at one time belonged to the Gosplan? What does M+P+ mean, and how do you get an internship at Google? In the latest edition of Open House, Valentin Biryukov, a second-year student in the Applied Mathematics and Informatics programme, and Maria Gordenko, a fourth-year student in the Computer Engineering programme, talk about these questions and more.
