HSE Day to Take Place on September 9
The Higher School of Economics is pleased to welcome guests back to one of the most exciting and lively locations in Moscow – Gorky Park, where the university is hosting its fourth annual HSE Day on September 9.
The Higher School of Economics is a university open to the city, which is why Muscovites and everyone in the capital at this time will have the unique opportunity to get a glimpse of life at the university and also to take part in various themed events.
This year’s HSE Day has a lot to offer guests — the best lectures from the Open University project; demonstrations of robots and a computerized brain by scientists from HSE MIEM and the Department of Psychology at the Science and Technology portion of the event; open lectures in English and a Russian tearoom to get to know Russian language and culture; a fashion show by the HSE School of Design; informal talks with representatives from all educational programmes; and much more. In short, everyone will be able to find something he or she is interested in. This year’s event will also have a new sports and entertainment event called the Reforma Fitness School.
There will, of course, also be an evening rock concert by Splean, a popular Russian group.
HSE Day is an excellent opportunity for everyone not only to have a good time, but also to become part of the HSE family.

Learning a new sport is good for the brain and no worse than traditional intellectual games. And who needs a clear mind more than a student? That’s why a lot of sports clubs have been established at HSE, and they will be represented at the ‘Sports and Activities’ platform.
Students from more than 20 countries and almost 200 international staff members currently study and work at HSE. With this in mind, HSE Day in Gorky Park will offer a platform for intercultural communication in the most varied of fields, from music to breaking stereotypes about certain countries and cultures. Here, international students will take the lead, and you’ll be able to learn about various cultures first-hand.
The special HSE Day will demonstrate real science to its guests at the ‘Science and Technology’ platform. The achievements will be showcased by HSE MIEM, the School of Psychology, and HSE Lab (HSE Prototyping Centre). They will answer the trickiest questions put by the geeks. You’ll be able to get hands on and investigate the technological achievements on display and even test them yourself.
Each year HSE welcomes new colleagues – Ph.D. holders from the world’s best universities – who join the university through the international recruiting programme. HSE continues the tradition of public lectures at HSE Day, and holds HSE Open Talks in English. Academics from all over the world representing the most diverse disciplines will discuss their research and talk with the public.
Russian students and teachers were not the only ones to actively participate in HSE Day on September 9; many foreigners who study or work at the university took part as well. Numerous activities enriching the celebration could be enjoyed without any knowledge of Russian — for example, Speed Dating, Dance Battle, and a variety of sporting events. However, some sites during the festival had a special English-language programme.
