International Student Support

Thank you for choosing our university for your international study experience. It is a great honour and pleasure for the International Students Support to have you with us.

This website is intended to serve as a quick reference whenever you encounter a problem or simply have a question. It will prepare you for life and study in Moscow and answer at least some questions that might arise during the first days of your stay.

Our office assists exchange and visiting students on any matters related to their stay in Moscow. Full-degree students enjoy the support of their respective programme offices and use our site for information about student life at HSE.

We wish you success and many wonderful discoveries!

Smart People Go to Therapy (Because they are Vulnerable)

On the first day of the weekend, a workshop on studying and working in a multicultural environment will be held in English, which will give international students the ability to participate as well.

The Great HSE Festivities: What Is There to Look Forward to?

We’ve been extremely busy celebrating our anti-versary: we’ve published books, been for a run in the park, masterminded special projects and organized conferences. But that was only the lead-up to the main event: the Great Festivities week - the culmination of all our celebratory efforts.

Classes (Partly) Cancelled Due to Anniversary Night

Effective from the afternoon of November 27, all the way through the morning of November 28, HSE will be celebrating its Anniversary Night. To allow students and staff to prepare for the event properly and not look like zombies at following day’s lectures, these dates will be partially considered days-off.

Webinars for HSE International Exchange Students

To help international students better prepare for an exchange period in Moscow, HSE Student International Mobility Office is launching a series of webinars.

Culture Café: Spain and Mexico

The first Culture Café of the new module took place on  November 1. It was doubly informative, because it was devoted to two countries at once: Spain and Mexico! Many thanks to HSE international students, who represented them perfectly: Aldo, Jorge, Zaira, Daniel, Ary, Sayuri and Enrique.

The last Culture Café of the first module was held on October 18, and was dedicated to Finland. It was the very first time ESN HSE Moscow and the International HSE Office hosted the Nordic country! We would like to thank the real Finnish guys, Mira, Minna, Ida, Ville and Eero, who made such a great Culture Café possible.
