On 31st January to 2nd February 2015 HSE held its annual International Winter School. The Department of Public Policy and Master Programme in Political Analysis and Public Policy headed by professor Nina Belyaeva took part in the event. The Winter School welcomed participants from Germany, France, China, Japan and other countries.
From January 24 to February 4, HSE's Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs hosted an international winter school. Sixty students from across the globe (Korea, Japan, China, Germany, Italy, Poland, Egypt, Morocco, to name but a few) came together for 12 days and were plunged into the hustle and bustle of daily life in Russia.
The students from nine countries took part in the HSE International Winter School. In addition to various student presentations, lectures, and consultations by experts, the school programme also included role-playing games.
On January 13-17, 2014, the International Winter School will take place at the School of Political Science - Forlí, University of Bologna. Nina Belyaeva, Head of the Public Policy Department, school lector and co-organiser, agreed to give an interview to the HSE News Service to tell us more about the upcoming event.
The Winter Schools’ Programme for prospective masters’ students has now become a tradition here at the HSE. This year, the schools programme has been set up especially for foreign students, and for this reason the working language of schools will be English. In February 2009, for the first time, the HSE organized a series of scientific and professionally orientated winter schools’ programmes for prospective masters’ students.
The popularity of this year’s Winter School at the HSE Department of Public Policy can be seen in the numbers. 72 international participants applied for it on time, and 17 more sent their applications in after the deadline.
On January 27th 2013, an international winter school organized by the HSE Department of Public Policy opened just outside Moscow. It brought together prospective students of the master’s programme on Political Analysis and Public Policy.
