In 2019, HSE University opened a Faculty of Chemistry, which offers a new bachelor’s programme in Chemistry.

Students of the HSE and University of London Parallel Degree Programme in International Relations earned some of the highest scores worldwide on the exams that the University of London administers at its foreign partner universities.
International students who are interested in applying to a bachelor’s or master’s programme at HSE University for Fall 2020 may now do so online.
Graduates of HSE University’s International College of Economics and Finance (ICEF) traditionally receive their degrees against a backdrop of grand fireplaces, an oak staircase, and a balcony overlooking the Kremlin. This is because the ICEF holds its commencement ceremony at the British ambassador’s residence on the Sofiyskaya Embankment. And this is not by accident. Graduates of the ICEF’s bachelor’s programme receive two degrees from HSE and the University of London, respectively, while graduates of the ICEF’s Master’s Programme in ‘Financial Economics’ receive a degree from HSE and the London School of Economics. This year marked the ICEF’s 19th commencement ceremony.
HSE offers a wide range of master’s programmes for all tastes. There are currently 31 programmes taught entirely in English. Some, such as ‘Financial Analyst’ or Prototyping Future Cities, are more practice-oriented; others pave the way for careers in academia. International students can apply online until August 20.
The HSE University and Kyung Hee University double degree programme ‘Economics and Politics in Asia’ is currently enrolling students.

On July 24, HSE University Rector Yaroslav Kuzminov and State Hermitage Museum Director Mikhail Piotrovsky officially signed a cooperation agreement. The university and the museum will collaborate on joint educational projects and research.

The second degree programme is also open to external students and working professionals.
