Since the academic year 2020/2021, the educational programs of undergraduate and graduate students of the FES have moved to a new model of student project work. An obligatory element of the curriculum for undergraduate and graduate students of all years of study is the Project, which includes project work, accompanied by a research project seminar, as well as by writing course and diploma papers. Projects bring together undergraduate and graduate students from different years of study working on similar topics.
Quite soon students will choose projects for participation in the next academic year 2022/2023.
All work on projects is conducted through the FES Project System - there will be the submission of applications, their review by supervisors, as well as further communication between the participants of the project.
From now until May 4, you can register in the System as a student, using your corporate email (@edu.hse.ru or @hse.ru). If you are already registered in the System and have participated in the project in the current academic year, you do not need to register again - your account will be saved, and the course will be automatically changed.
May 5 - 10: you can see the list of projects available for students of your educational program, and submit exactly ONE application for the project. It can be a project you particularly like, or one with the supervisor of which you have an agreement to write a term/diploma paper next year. Since we anticipate that there will probably be some students and teachers who have agreed in advance to work together in the next academic year, we would like to ask these students to submit one project application first in order to reduce the burden on supervisors and the system during the mass selection of projects. These applications will be seen by the supervisors on May 9, so you can look at the entire list of projects from May 5 to 8 without fear of being late.
May 11 - 19: you will submit up to THREE simultaneous applications for the projects you like, available to students of your educational program. Carefully look through the sample project syllabus and topics, recommended courses, and application approval format (some supervisors conduct verbal interviews or ask for small test assignments). We also recommend writing motivation letters when submitting applications. During the application period, you have the opportunity to edit your applications, to change selected projects, until your application is approved by a supervisor. Once one of these applications is accepted by the supervisor, then the student is enrolled in the project, and the remaining applications are canceled. Please note that the option to select three projects is not available to students who have already been enrolled in a project after submitting one application between May 5 and 10. If you submitted one application earlier, but it has not yet been approved, you can submit two more applications for other projects, and even replace your first application if you wish.
May 20 - 22: those students who were not enrolled in any of the projects during the first phase will submit up to five applications for projects with free places and rank the projects in order of priority. After that, an algorithm will distribute students among the projects, taking into account the number of applications for a given project, students' priorities, and their ratings/GPA (if the number of applicants exceeds the number of remaining places).
Those students who for some reason will not be able to choose the projects or will not be enrolled in any of the projects, but participated in the project selection procedure, will be enrolled in any of the projects after May 22.
Students of FEFU and the online MA program "Economic analysis" will choose projects later

Please note that you can apply till April 15
We would like to inform you that starting from this academic year, there are new HSE Regulations regarding project work. According to these Regulations, the supervisor (or co-supervisor) must create a technical assignment (specification) for each student, and the student, in turn, must accept this task. We have already asked project supervisors to prepare technical assignments for you, according to which your work in the project will be assessed.
Some supervisors have already started sending these assignments to students. To see your assignment, go to the FES Project System. In the top left, next to "My Project", you should see "My Group". Go to this section and click on "My Assignment" on the left. Read the description of the task (topic, objectives, goal, requirements, etc.) and then click on the green "Approve" button in the upper right corner.
If you don't have the section “My group” yet, it means your supervisor hasn't created your task. Don't worry and wait until the end of the holidays.
You can change your project till February 15 if you are a 4-th year BA student or 2-nd year MA student, or till the end of the third module if you are a students of other years. To change the project, a student can choose the project he/she likes in the System and apply for a change using a special window. The application is considered approved and the student is transferred to a new project only if this application has been accepted by both the current project leader and new project leader.
Dear students who have not chosen a project for the current academic year yet!
Now you need to sign up for the System and look at the list of projects available for your educational program. Choose a project you like and write to its supervisor via email. After the supervisor confirms your participation, you need to apply for this project through the system.
To get information about the students currently enrolled in a project, go to "My Projects", select the necessary project (by clicking on the project name) and open the "Students" section. Here you can also download all the information in a single Excel file (blue "xlsx" button in the upper right corner). Since not all students actively use their corporate emails, some students have an additional email written in this list.
This is a common thing that some students, who are not involved in any project, appear during the academic year. These may be students who have transferred from other universities or faculties, some of them may have missed a year for health reasons or due to exchange programmes. These students can submit one application for the project at any time, you will see this application in the "My Applications" tab (the application will immediately turn red when it is submitted). Although we advise students to talk to the project leader before applying, not everyone follows this advice.
Students, who have already signed up for the System, may apply to transfer to another project before the end of the second module (end of December). The application is considered approved and the student is transferred to a new project only if this application has been accepted by both current project leader and new project leader. All transfer applications can be seen in the "Transfer Requests" tab, which is highlighted in red if you have at least one application that has not been approved yet
To schedule a new project meeting with students through the system, go to "My Projects", select the necessary project (by clicking on the project name), open the "Announcements" section and click on "Add Meeting Announcement". In a meeting announcement, you can specify the topic of the meeting, its time and place (either the classroom or a Zoom / MS Teams link) and other necessary additional information. After an announcement is published, all students from the project receive an email notification of a new meeting appointment.
To publish a message to students through the system, go to "My Projects", select the necessary project (by clicking on the project name), open the "Announcements" section and click on "Add New Message". For a message, you can allow comments from project participants, if any feedback from students is needed. After a message is published, all students from the project receive an email notification
