people have already signed up for the HSE Olympiad for students and alumni. Registration ends on February 9, and the Olympiad will be held February 14-15.
The competition is open to students from any university who are completing an undergraduate or specialist programme, as well as to alumni. Citizenship does not matter.
On the recommendation of the HSE Academic Council, the Olympiad winners and runners up are granted maximum points on the subjects of entrance examinations. The number of accumulated points for the winners is such that they ‘automatically’ become Master’s students.
In the field of ‘Design’, the competition takes place in two stages. By February 9 students should send a completed assignment – an essay and project work – to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Student Olympiad in the field of “Design”’, after which a jury will select participants who will be admitted to the second stage where projects are defended either in person or over Skype.
Last year, 516 people were enrolled as HSE Master’s students following the Olympiad.
