Important Update (May,1 2020):

At HSE our priority is the health and well being of our students. Recognising the rapidly evolving impact of Covid-19, we regret to inform you that all our face-to-face programmes for summer 2020 have been suspended. HSE Summer University will be offering courses online. 

We are excited to introduce a range of online summer programmes across a variety of disciplines. Choose an online course and participate from anywhere in the world!

Updated schedule for 2020 is available here


Summer University at HSE is a new initiative designed to provide students, PhD candidates, post-docs and professionals from around the world with unique opportunities to enhance their knowledge in area studies and beyond. Offering a broad interdisciplinary selection of courses, the Summer University is open to all students and will be of particular interest to those who study International Relations, History, Political Science and other social sciences and humanities. Many of the courses, taught in English, focus on the politics, history, economics, and culture of Russia and Eurasia.

Combine courses from HSE Summer University with ones from St. Petersburg HSE Summer School and get a glimpse of St. Petersburg!
