The primary goal of this programme is to develop students’ skills in applying multi-disciplinary analytic approaches to population development and resource allocation issues, essential for public administration in numerous sectors. It is aimed at individuals with different backgrounds who want to understand the ways in which changes in development and population influence each other.  A strong theoretical background and history of population development issues are provided together with up-to-date approaches to analyzing and projecting population structure and needs for resources. Based on this knowledge, population policy and key demographic challenges (that arose in the second half of the 20th century, and persist in the 21st) are discussed.

International Students Can Now Apply to HSE through a Simplified Procedure

HSE’s Admission Rules for the 2017/2018 academic year have undergone some changes in regards to international admission. The admission track is now unified for students from both CIS and non-CIS countries. Thus, only two exams must be passed in order to be accepted into a given undergraduate programme, while competitions for Master’s programmes only require a portfolio and an interview. The rules for International Olympiad Competitions have also been changed. Registration for these competitions ends on November 15.

Teaching Quality Assessment

From its very inception, our University has always paid special attention to the quality of teaching. Getting feedback on how you assess the studied courses and the work of your teachers is an important part of quality evaluation. Programme leadership need to understand how successful individual courses are, and if their syllabuses should be modified. Teachers use evaluation results and recommendations to learn if the course requires adjustments and to plan its further development.

Banking Cards for HSE Students

HSE has gradually begun transitioning payment of scholarships to VTB 24 cards. Cards will initially be issued to first-year Bachelor’s, Specialist and Master’s students. Scholarship payments for first-year students will be transferred only to VTB 24 cards.
