Individual Study Plan
Every HSE student has an Individual Study Plan.
To determine your Individual Study Plan we recommend that you use these guides while searching for courses*:
- http://www.hse.ru/en/edu/study/ (only for English-taught courses);
- http://www.hse.ru/edu/courses/ (for both Russian and English-taught courses).
These guides provide information concerning a module in which a course is held, the number of credits granted for a course, the department holding the course, and type of course it is.
There are several types of courses.
Compulsory courses are always on schedule and are held annually on a regular basis.
Elective courses, however, are optional and are offered only if 20 students are registered. If fewer than 20 students register for the course, it will be cancelled. The ultimate decision on whether to hold or cancel such courses is taken at the beginning of September.
The HSE places no restrictions regarding courses and credits. You can take as many elective or compulsory courses as you wish. The main criterion is your interest and the requirements of your home university.
Please keep your home university requirements in mind when developing your individual curriculum.
After you decide on the courses you would like to take, go to your LMS profile and select the courses there. The system automatically submits your individual curriculum to the International Students Office.
