Participation in student organizations is an important part of life at HSE. There are about 80 different communities engaged in almost all kinds of activities, from dancing to parliamentary debates. People can also try to do their part and join a charity.
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 October 18 (for some countries, deadlines may be extended).
