HSE’s Preparatory Year trains international students with little or no knowledge of Russian before they begin Russian-taught full-degree programs. Over 10 months of intensive study, students improve their basic language skills (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), study in a chosen academic field (humanities, economics, or engineering), and adapt to the new educational environment. Upon completing Preparatory Year, students are expected to possess intermediate-level language skills (CEFR level B1, TRKI level 1) and be ready to enter the Russian-taught full-degree programs at HSE and other Russian universities.
How to apply:
Application deadline: August 15, 2016

All international students are provided with a dormitory and can live at HSE dormitories for a very affordable rate (approximately 1100 rubles) per month.

Students can apply for full-tuition scholarships only through their local Rossotrudnichestvo branch. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
