Go East! DAAD Scholarships for Students from Germany at HSE this Summer

We are delighted to announce 25 scholarships for students from Germany who wish to enroll in HSE Moscow’s Summer University and HSE-St. Petersburg’s Summer School this year, as part of the DAAD programme Go East.

HSE joins universities from across Eastern Europe and Eurasia in welcoming students from Germany for short-term summer study. Since 2003, DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) has enabled students to study in the region to broaden their exposure and build strong language skills. HSE has participated in the programme since 2013.

Through Go East, ten scholarships are available for HSE-Moscow’s Summer University, which will be held over three weeks, from June 22 to July 11. The core of the programme is Russian language classes, which are offered at three levels (elementary, intermediate, and advanced) and held every day. Additionally, students can take courses including Challenges to EU-Russian Economic Links, Media, Culture, and Society,  Russian Space and Russian State, Doing Business in Russia.

Fifteen DAAD-sponsored scholarships are also available for German students who wish to enrol in HSE-St. Petersburg’s three-week programme “The Topography of Imperial Power: The Political Space of St. Petersburg”. Held September 8-29, 2015, the programme examines the city as the capital of Imperial Russia from 1721 to 1917. Courses are taught in English and German.

DAAD Go East scholarships are only valid for the specific programme dates listed above, however, scholarships recipients can choose to extend their studies at HSE. They are welcome to take more Summer University courses (held from June 22 to August 8, 2015) by paying the regular tuition fee.
