National Research University – Higher School of Economics

It's important to be in Russia to research it than viewing the country from afar

This is my second time in Moscow – I spent last spring here as an intern at the US embassy so I lived here for three months.

I am a Bachelor’s Degree student in the United States right now at the University of Wisconsin and I am studying political science. I am really interested in Russian politics, so this may be a great university for me in the future to continue studies at.

When you are here and you experience the culture and meet the people, you are obviously going to have a different attitude. It’s different from when you are home and view it from afar and based on what you see in the news. I think there is a different perception when you are actually here in Moscow.

The buddy programme has been invaluable; it made my arrival extremely easy, and all of the buddies have been extremely kind and welcoming. The welcome party was also a success. It was great to have all the students gathered in a room and to hear of everyone’s experiences so far.
