We also collected cards with the questions that we most often received from you.
The motivation letter must meet two important criteria: How the programme can be useful for your development and what you expect to do, put a part of the programme? Try to structure your thoughts and give up long novels.
It all depends on the university you choose. If it’s Seoul/Maastricht/Turin, then you must pass the exams. If you choose Berlin, then this is not necessary.
Everyone answers this question differently. Many of graduates say that it is possible to combine work and study, but you need to be prepared for sleepless nights in this case, because HSE has strict deadlines and as part of the educational programme you will have to work on large projects. So be prepared for a double load in this case. And try to fand a balance between work and study.
HSE does not provide financial support, but there are some scholarships available in partner universities, depends on what you will choose.
