Students will have the opportunity to create their own curriculum drawn from a wide array of courses offered by the National Research University – Higher School of Economics in Moscow, Russia.
Students can attend the HSE for one or two semesters and accredited academic credits are transferrable to home institutions. Programme advisors are available to help students design a curriculum customized to their own interests and goals. Students can choose a specific area of studies, for example, Economics & Finance or Russian Studies and Beyond, or they can combine two separate fields.
There are many benefits to studying at the HSE, both inside and outside the university. Students will be able to explore Moscow, Russia’s thriving capital, and learn about its captivating history, as well as traveling to nearby destinations like the Golden Ring and St. Petersburg. They will get a valuable, practical, hands-on insight into another culture. They also have the chance to enhance their career prospects, make lifelong friends, and study in a friendly, international, and intellectually stimulating atmosphere.
We’re not the only ones who think studying abroad is a great idea: research shows that experience in other countries makes you a more flexible, creative, and complex thinker.
