Attention and Atención

How language proficiency correlates with cognitive skills

HSE Doctoral Graduates Receive Their Certificates

This year, 117 students graduated from doctoral programmes at the HSE campus in Moscow. On November 1, they received their graduation certificates. Some of them also defended their theses under a new procedure that was introduced at HSE this year, while the others will do this within the next year.

New Platform at HSE to Present Research by International Laboratories and Centres

HSE is launching a new platform to host popular science lectures for all students and staff. The new lecture series will unveil the results of the most recent research carried out by HSE’s laboratories and advanced research centres.
