How to read the HSE University course catalogues?
- Field 'When'
The field 'When" includes a year of studies (relevant to full-degree students; exchange can use it for reference) and modules in which the course runs.
If there are several modules indicated in this files, you are expected to attend the course in all of them.
Example: When: 4 year, 2, 3 module - 4 year HSE students take this course and it starts in Module 2 and finishes in Modules 3.
- Field 'Mode of studies'
Offline – means that a course does not include a MOOC (e.g. Coursera)
Distance learning – means that a course includes a MOOC. It can include some HSE-run components or none.
- Field: Open to
Students of one campus – means that a course is designed to be run by an HSE instructor in the face-to-face mode
Everyone / Students of all HSE University campuses – means that a course is designed to be run by an HSE instructor in an online synchronous mode (e.g. in Zoom or MSTeams). Some instructors record their classes, some do not.
Course catalogue is not updated. What should I do?
There are two types of courses at HSE University:
Can I enroll in any HSE University course?
Exchange students are not allocated to any particular study programme or faculty and are free to take courses from any faculty at any level of study, except for courses that belong to the following educational programmes:
- Master in Math of Machine Learning (courses run by Skoltech)
- some courses that are part of Parallel/Double Degree programmes with University of London
- Economics and Company Management (Institute of Professional Retraining)
- Stock Market and Investments (Institute of Professional Retraining)
- Financial Management (Institute of Professional Retraining)
Things to keep in mind when choosing courses:
►Admission on a first come, first served basis;
►Should be approved by your home university;
►May have prerequisites (a Transcript of Records/a Letter of Recommendation/an entrance test);
►A course may be cancelled/postponed or the timetable may be changed due to professor’ plans changed or programme redesign:
►Make sure the courses do not overlap and you have time to travel between HSE buildings.
What if there is no syllabus of the course I want to take (or it is only in Russian)?
How can I find the timetable of the courses?
