Undergraduate Entrance Exams Offered in English for the First Time
This year, for the first time, international students applying to undergraduate programmes at HSE can take their entrance exams in English. These exams are necessary for admissions to the university’s two English-taught Bachelor’s programmes: a double-degree BSc in Economics and a parallel-degree BA in International Relations. Both programmes are run jointly with the University of London, a long-standing partner of HSE.
To apply to the Economics programme in HSE’s International College of Economics and Finance (ICEF), international applicants must take exams in mathematics and English. Applicants to the International Relations programme offered by HSE Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs must take exams in social sciences and a foreign language. Entrance examinations are to be held in July.
Full details regarding schedules and exam preparation can be found on the programme websites: Economics and International Relations. Applicants may stay at HSE’s dormitories in Moscow during the exam period. Original documents must be submitted to the HSE International Admissions in Moscow in person between June 20 and July 10 or sent via post by a registered and recorded letter with a list of enclosures at the following address: Pokrovsky bulvar 8/1, room 311 Moscow 109028, Russia. If you do send your materials by post, please email the programme coordinator to let them know you have done so. Examination results will be announced after July 25.
International applicants can also apply to HSE Bachelor’s programmes by taking HSE internal entrance examinations in Russian or submitting Russian Unified State Exam results. More information about these exams can be found on General Admissions Board page (in Russian). These exams will also be held in July.
For more information on international student applications, please contact International Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or programme coordinators: Boris Korotkin for International Relations programme and Sergey Konyshev or Olga Nechaeva for Economics.
