How does it work?

If you have received a 50% scholarship for undergraduate studies for four years, you will get an additional 5% discount for your first year of study upon signing your admissions contract and paying for your 1st and 2nd modules of study (i.e. half of the full annual amount) until June 30, 2020. Thus, your scholarship will cover 55% of the total fees.

Let's take one of the most popular programmes at HSE University, the Bachelor's programme in Economics, as an example. The tuition fee for each year is 580,000 Russian rubles. With a 55% scholarship, the amount you will have to pay would be 261,000 rubles. You can calculate your own grants&scholarships using an online calculator.

How do I receive the additional 5% discount to my scholarship?

Applicants for undergraduate programmes must pass two exams (two core subjects) online. Be sure to take advantage of mock tests that the University has made available online. They might increase your chances of admission.

Those applying to graduate programmes at HSE University have an opportunity to register for a preliminary online interview and free portfolio evaluation. Before applying online, you can talk with programme representatives who will be able to give you preliminary feedback about your portfolio. After that, you can make changes to your portofolio as necessary and apply.

Once admitted to the programme of your choice, you must confirm your acceptance of the admission offer in your personal online account. Afterwards, you will receive an official email with further instructions about the additional discount.

Whom can I contact if I have questions?

The Education & Training Advisory Centre is always available to help, whether you are seeking advice about your academic path, want to learn about scholarship opportunities, or have questions about the admissions process.

The Centre's hours of operation and contact information are available here.

What if I didn't get accepted to HSE this year?

You have an excellent opportunity to get to know Russia by learning the Russian language in one of HSE' s International Preparatory Programmes

The Centre for International Prepratory Programmes is launching an intensive online course of Russian as a Foreign Language. The course will begin October 1, 2020, and will be part of a blended preparatory programme that aims to help international students gain proficiency in Russian so that they can enrol in Russian-taught undergraduate and graduate programmes. Registration for the course is already open.
