International Students Testimonials

Amandeus Van Rossum, Netherlands

National Research University – Higher School of Economics

I didn’t expect that I would meet so many great people

I took six courses. I found most of the courses interesting. I was especially interested in the EU-Russia relations and US-Russia relations. I found out a lot about Russian politics, BRICS countries, etc. And the Russian language course helped me a lot to get by in Russian.

I haven’t studied Russian before. When I got here, I didn’t speak Russian at all, and now I can read it and speak it.

As for my motivation, I wanted to do something fun with my summer, something out of the ordinary. And I thought why not try this, which might be interesting for my future Master’s. My major now is political science. I studied in the Netherlands at the University College Roosevelt in this place called Middelburg. I hadn’t heard about the Summer University programme before, I just typed "Russia university in Moscow," and HSE was the first university that I found. And my impressions are really good.

I never expected that I would meet so many great people, visit such interesting lectures, and learn so much in such a short period of time. I have a very positive attitude towards the programme.
