HSE University summer schools are open to HSE University students and alumni, as well as students of Russian and foreign universities, HSE instructors and invited Russian and foreign experts. The training offered at these schools not only provides an educational programme but also involves participation in design and research work. Summer school students learn modern methods of applied research, take part in practical exercises, and develop and discuss research projects.

Many HSE summer schools work with students and alumni annually over a span of 4-5 years.

The requirements to participate are listed on the website of each summer school.
