At the end of each academic year, undergraduate and graduate students select elective courses that are independent of their individual curricula for the following academic year. Since 2015, a specially developed elective courses module has been used for this.
This year, the module has changed significantly. It is transforming into a full-fledged individual course schedule builder. Now, HSE University needs to conduct mass testing of it.
The testing is scheduled to start at 3 pm MST on May 20. During testing, the Digital Office will check the operation of the module and collect all error notifications.
The testing will take place in the new module. The page currently displays the time remaining until the beginning of the testing. If you would like to participate in the testing, click here on May 20 at 3 pm.
If a small number of errors are found, the Digital Office will eliminate them and launch the elective course enrollment period in June. If critical errors are detected in the module, the enrollment period may be postponed to the beginning of the next academic year, and students will be notified.
How is the new course selection module different?
All disciplines will be divided into different tabs. For example, mandatory courses will be included in students’ individual curricula automatically. And under the tabs for ‘elective courses’, ‘courses of other curricula’ and ‘faculty courses’, students will be able to view their own programme’s elective courses, other courses that are open to students of their programme, as well as additional courses of other programmes that have been approved by the leadership of their faculty.
All English courses will be accessible to 2nd-year undergraduate students on an ‘English’ tab.
In addition, this year, students selecting different courses will be able to view more information about their planned schedules. Thus, they will be able to select courses so as to avoid any scheduling or location conflicts.
