Since 2015 HSE’s International Prep Year programmes train international students with little or no knowledge of Russian before they begin Russian-taught full-degree programmes. Upon completing the programme, 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.

We have a wonderful team of highly-qualified and dedicated teachers, who use the latest study materials, communicative approach and a great variety of interactive teaching methods.

HSE International Prep Year is your chance to:

  • study Russian language at many different levels (А0-С2);
  • acquire language skills for admission to HSE or another Russian university;
  • complete a general preparatory course in thematic disciplines: mathematics, physics, computer science, literature, history, social studies;
  • discover study opportunities at HSE and join the brightest student community;
  • meet Russian culture and traditions;
  • live in Moscow - a vibrant, modern city, rich in culture and full of history;
  • AND to have a discount for full-degree programmes.
