Following a Journey from a Small Brazilian Town to Moscow, a Recent HSE Graduate Looks to a Future in Diplomacy
Leandro Cassius, a recent graduate from HSE’s Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs, has long been interested in languages and international affairs. He actually started learning Russian on his own when he was 14 years old and still living in his native Brazil. He would later spend a year taking a Russian course at Belgorod State University before being admitted to HSE.
In 2018, HSE Moscow is enrolling students in 5 bachelor's programmes where they will study in English. Graduates of these programmes receive two diplomas – Russian and international. One of the programmes includes an obligatory internship abroad. International students can apply online until August 10.
Researchers from the Higher School of Economics conducted a meta-analysis by compiling data across 17 neuroimaging studies on working memory in children.The data obtained shows concordance in frontoparietal regions recognized for their role in working memory as well as regions not typically highlighted as part of the working memory network, such as the insula.
