Bakay Berdibaev, Study Tour Experience 2018/19
I am originally from Kyrgyzstan but now I’m doing my Bachelor’s at Siberian Federal University in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. I would like to earn a Master’s in Financial Economics from HSE University. I therefore applied for Study Tour Experience to learn more about HSE. An opportunity to explore Moscow was a nice bonus.
During the two weeks of the study tour, we attended various lectures and seminars. It was possible to choose Russian or English-taught courses in different subjects. In addition, I was able to go to two major conferences held at HSE University where I heard prominent businessmen Boris Titov and Alexander Frolov speak about their business ventures.
I can say that these two weeks have changed my outlook on life. I’ve come to realize that the world needs ambitious, goal-oriented, and determined people. The trip was a very positive and memorable experience. I had a lot of fun.
I was quite impressed by student life at HSE University – it appears that there are tons of student clubs and activities. There are also a lot of international students at HSE University, which is great. I met many interesting people during my time in Moscow and we still keep in touch. We stayed at the HSE dorms in the city centre. I shared a room with two other students. The accommodation was quite comfortable and nice.
All in all, I can say that Study Tour Experience is an excellent opportunity to get a taste of studying at HSE University and living in Moscow. I strongly recommend the programme to everyone.
