How Will the New Academic Year Start for Students Who Cannot Travel to Russia yet?

Due to the pandemic, many international students will not be able to arrive on campus by the beginning of the academic year, September 1 (October 1 for some graduate programmes).

Online classes will be arranged for these students until they are able to travel to Russia. HSE University will ensure the full-scale implementation of programme curricula online thanks to the digital solutions and services available for for all students. Moreover, all students have an approved curriculum that can include a remote learning option so that it is possible to complete the coursework online until students are able to arrive at HSE campus after the restrictions have been lifted.

International students will receive an email with detailed information about their online study shortly. Students can also contact their programme study offices or programme managers and clarify all the technical requirements for completing online coursework.

An online welcome session will be held for all incoming first-year students very soon, during which international students will be able to ask HSE staff about the new academic year and arriving on campus in Moscow. Follow our Facebook group page for more announcements.
