Support of International Students

The HSE University Directorate for Cooperation with the CIS and Baltic Countries provides support to the students from neighbouring countries, while the International Student Recruitment Centre supports students from countries further abroad. Employees of these departments help with documents required for admission and resolve administrative and everyday issues.

International students at the HSE University quickly adapt to life in Russia, thanks to the student organisation HSE University Buddies. It organises meetings, trips, excursions and other events contributing to cultural exchange and the formation of a single international community of HSE University students.

Everyday Life of International Students

For students admitted to state-funded places, i.e. with a 100% scholarship from the Russian government ('quotas'), the distribution model will not change. These students will be accommodated in the HSE dormitories as before. The average dormitory fee is 2,000 Russian rubles per month.

Full scholarship recipients will be able to find information about their HSE University dormitory assignment in their online Bachelor's or Master's accounts no earlier than August 16, 2021.

Students who come to HSE University on academic mobility programmes will also be accommodated in one of HSE dormitories.

Fee-paying students and students with partial grants will be able to participate in the new student housing programme, which will provide assistance with finding an apartment or room for rent, and, if necessary, roommate pairing. Details are available on the My HSE House website.

Leisure and Sport Events

Students of the HSE University lead active and rich lives outside their studies. At the university there are over 50 associations including singing, drawing and dance schools, KVN team, theatre, choirs, debating clubs, sports clubs, travel clubs and many more.

Employment of International Graduates

Graduates of HSE University work at international public organisations as well as at global companies such as Ernst&Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte, PepsiCo, Accenture, Citi, L’Oreal, McKinsey&Company, IBM, Google, KPMG and Microsoft.
