The Higher School of Economics is a national research university whose scholars are making a practical contribution to building a new Russia.
Graduates of our university work at leading Russian and foreign companies, state agencies, and conduct research in academic organizations around the world.
Research, educational, project, analysis, social and cultural work at the Higher School of Economics is all carried out in line with international academic and organizational standards. Our research and innovative developments are known far beyond Russia’s borders.
The Higher School of Economics is recognized by the global academic community as a university that is not only a leader in Russian education, but also a potential partner. We successfully cooperate with universities in the United States, Germany, Britain, China, Spain, the Czech Republic and Bulgaria, to name just a few countries.
Strong knowledge of English is an important prerequisite for admission and instruction in our university. In each educational programme, the number of hours devoted to studying English is commensurate with the number of hours at language schools. Moreover, every student, regardless of educational programme, takes the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) in the second year of study. Only upon successful completion of this test can students advance to the next course.
Each educational programme provides for a number of special courses taught in English by foreign professors.
The Higher School of Economics has campuses in Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, St. Petersburg and Perm.
The Nizhny Novgorod campus is the oldest of all the campuses outside Moscow. In 2016, it will mark its 20th anniversary. Source: https://nnov.hse.ru/en/info/
