International Admission 2018

Starting from 15 November international students can apply online to study at HSE and Faculty of Economic Sciences. Deadline for full scholarship application is February 28, 2018

Moscow-based Faculty of Economic Sciences at the Higher School of Economics invites highly motivated international students who excel in mathematics to apply for bachelor and master studies in economics, statistics and finance. Soon-to-be graduates who expect graduation by summer 2018 and are interested in studying economics or finance should apply online with the current transcript to the faculty of economic sciences at the Higher School of Economics (HSE) located in Moscow, Russia.


We invite students to consider undergraduate study at HSE in Moscow — this is one of the most selective programs in Russia, with endless study abroad locations, research labs and graduate school preparation — all this at a very affordable cost. Faculty of Economic Sciences has a lot of programs for those who can study in Russian and a few in English. International students pay the same tuition fees as Russian students, and are provided with safe dormitory accommodation in Moscow, which makes study at HSE very affordable. Check more on undergraduate opportunities at our leaflet

At the moment four undergraduate programs at HSE Moscow campus are taught entirely in English —in economics (provided by International College of Economics and Finance) and international relations (provided by the Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs), management and digital innovation (provided by the Faculty of Business and Management) and applied data analysis (provided by the Faculty of Computer Science), giving students the opportunity to earn undergraduate degrees from HSE and the University of London (London School of Economics and Political Science).

To study in these programs, the students can have no knowledge of Russian at all, just be interested in the field of study and a willingness to study in Moscow. Here are some answers to the question why they may be willing to do so. Online registration is open at this page https://admissions.hse.ru/en/undergraduate-apply


Graduate study at HSE in Moscow provides students with dual degrees opportunities, career development, and employment opportunities. Fellowships available. Affordable and safe dormitories for all enrolled students.

We offer two master’s programs are taught entirely in English:

- ICEF's Financial Economics
, taught in cooperation with University of London (London School of Economics and Political Science), and  
- Strategic Corporate Finance program.

To study in these programs students do not need Russian language. They need to have strong quantitative skills, solid mathematics background, be interested in finance and economics, and be willing to study in Moscow. Students who want to spend their second year in such universities as Erasmus, Lancaster School of Management, Sorbonne, Humboldt and University of Luxembourg are entitled to  dual degrees upon successful completion of graduation requirements. Some students choose to spend a semester or year abroad, and HSE has about 200 destinations that students choose among.

For a potential applicant who can study in Russian, Faculty of Economic Sciences provides plenty of programs, fellowships and financial support. They also can have a one-year, or one-semester preparatory training if they think their Russian language is not enough for academic purposes.

We offer free online courses at Coursera in English as a great way to get an idea what teaching at HSE can be like.
