After logging in, you will immediately see the application form. Please fill out the form.
Detailed information on the specifics of the application process is available here.
Instructions on how to use the application form can be found here. Applications may be submitted in English or in Russian.
There are several attachments that you should be ready to upload:
a) Scan of the first page of your passport
b) Scan of your diplomas and academic transcripts (if you have not yet received your Bachelor’s diploma, please include an official copy of your most recent academic transcript)
c) Letter of motivation (describing your reasons for applying in the context of your long-term career goals and background, 500 words)

f) Exam results confirming language proficiency

Under “Field of study”, please select the two programmes that you wish to apply to. Your first choice and second choice programmes must be different. To select a programme, click on the box so that it turns green and the list collapses. Several programmes offer full tuition scholarships. If the “Tuition-free (quota) education” box is already checked, it means that if you apply to this programme you will automatically be considered for a full-tuition scholarship. If you would consider studying at HSE without the support of a full-tuition scholarship, please check the “Tuition-based” box. If the “Tuition-free (quota) education” box is not checked, this means that full-tuition scholarships are not available for this programme.
When you have fully completed the application form, click “Submit application” at the bottom of the form. Please note that this action is final and cannot be reversed, so make sure that you have correctly entered all of your information. After you have submitted your application, you will see the following message: “Congratulations! Your application has been successfully submitted and is currently pending review.”
Tuition free scholarships are awarded to the restricted number of highly qualified applicants.
