My Journey as a Public Policy Student at HSE

"I still remember the first day I landed in Moscow. It was autumn, the weather was slightly chilly and Moscow felt surprisingly familiar to me. It took me a good two weeks to finish all the paperwork (which was quite daunting in the beginning), after which I started feeling much more settled in Moscow. The program is truly international - I was amazed by the number of students from different countries such as Syria, Mexico, France, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Nigeria, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Kazakhstan and so many more." - by Sambhavna Biswas, alumni of the programme
