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!

Demand for Russian Language Classes Grows

Fifteen American students have come to HSE to study Russian as a foreign language as part of ‘USA in Russia’ study abroad programme developed by the University of South Alabama in partnership with HSE since 2014. Every other year, Nicholas Gossett, Assistant Professor of Russian and Applied Linguistics, brings a group of students to Moscow to study the Russian language as well as attend lectures and seminars on Russian culture, history, business, and other subjects. The goal is for students to not only improve their knowledge of the Russian language but to also make life-long connections in Russia which will help them in the academic, professional, and personal life.
