Master’s Programme 'International Relations in Eurasia'

This programme is delivered in collaboration with University College London, UK, and the University of Kent, UK (separate tracks). During the first year, students study in the UK and during the second year they study in Russia at HSE. Initial applications must be submitted directly to the relevant university in the UK.

Teaching in the programme is based on a multidisciplinary approach that allows students to examine the complex interrelationship of politics and economics in today’s globalized world with a focus on Eurasian studies. It aims to attract Russian and international Bachelor’s and Master’s students. Students in the programme benefit from studying in truly international groups under the supervision of international faculty and experts from academia, business, and government institutions. Since the project began in 2008 many students from Russia, UK, USA, China, Germany, Poland, Finland, France, Austria, Italy, Czech Republic and other countries have completed their Master’s degree at HSE and partner universities.
