Despite pandemic restrictions, 2,055 students from 156 countries have enrolled at HSE University in 2021.
International applicants can apply for Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes in a separate admissions process for international applicants and receive scholarships with full or partial tuition fee coverage. For Admissions 2022, there are 1300 full-tuition scholarships available and 800 scholarships, covering 25, 50 or 70% of the tuition. In order to qualify for a scholarship, submit your application early (by March 1, 2022).
Undergraduate applicants can test their chances of admission now by taking mock tests. Master’s applicants also have the opportunity to get a preliminary assessment of their portfolio and communicate with their programme of choice online.
Alexander Deev, Director of International Admissions
'If applicants want to get a full scholarship, they should prepare for the bachelor entrance exams thoroughly. Master's applicants should carefully check all the criteria regarding the documents required for portfolio competitions.'
Applications for undergraduate programmes will be accepted until August 14, 2022. Applicants need to submit the required documents and pass entrance tests online or in-person. When applying to a Bachelor’s programme, it is possible to submit international certificates you have received in English and mathematics, such as IELTS, TOEFL, A-Level and other international exams and they will be recognized by HSE University, so taking entrance exams in relevant subjects will not be required.
Master’s admissions will be open until August 10, 2022. Applicants should submit their portfolios online. Short-listed candidates can be invited for an interview with the academic supervisors of the relevant programme. Portfolio requirements differ from programme to programme and can be found on programme websites.
Ivan Prostakov, HSE University Vice Rector
