'Unprecedented atmosphere of Moscow turned this two years of studies into the best experience of my life'

The Higher School of Economics gradually takes higher positions in the authoritative World University Rankings. At the same time, the University is becoming more and more popular among international students. On the one hand, foreigners can apply to study for free through full-tuition scholarships which completely waive all tuition fees for select full-degree Bachelor's and Master's programmes at HSE. On the other hand, tuition fees in HSE appear to be lower than in many universities outside Russia. We have talked to English speaking graduates of the English-taught Master’s programme System and Software Engineering and found out about their experience of studying in HSE, life in Moscow, and what do they do as professionals now.

International Experts in the Faculty of Computer Science 

An important step in integrating the university into the global educational, scientific and research space is the expansion of international recruiting. Since its very first year, the Faculty of Computer Science at the Higher School of Economics has had a foreign professor working on staff. In 2015, four internationally recruited experts teach and conduct research in the faculty.

10th International Computer Science Symposium in Russia

On July 13th-17th 2015, the 10th International Computer Science Symposium in Russia took place. The largest conference on theoretical informatics in Russia was organized by Irkutsk State University, the Higher School of Economics and Yandex. Vladimir Podolskii, Associate Professor at the Big Data and Information Retrieval School took part in the event as guest speaker. Maxim Babenko, Head of the Joint Department with Yandex also delivered a report during the event.

Students of HSE Faculty of Computer Science Talk about their Studies

While some graduates are preparing for MA enrollment exams, others have already received confirmation from international universities. Graduates from the Faculty of Computer Science tell us about their decision to continue their studies abroad, the enrollment procedure, computer science courses available in international universities, and the role of fundamental math in studying economics.
