The international ambassador project is one of the leading projects by the international study office of the HSE University in St. Petersburg. This project helps to create awareness about the University in various countries and hometowns. We have talked to Ibuowo Grace, a fourth-year student of the BA Programme «Political Science and World Politics», who is serving her second year as the international student ambassador of the HSE University.
Much has been said about online education over the last year. What used to be perceived as a challenge a few months ago has become a new comfort zone and does not impress anyone. Indeed, during the pandemic, we have proved that persistence, professionalism, and flexibility bring good results even when the world is turned upside-down. Having had a successful experience of hosting the St. Petersburg HSE Summer School online, the university introduces HSE – St. Petersburg International Research School, a new project encouraging students all over the world to explore different areas — from Russia’s role in international relations to social, cultural, gender aspects of Russia’s historical experience, and even to the burning issue of what global business is going to be like when the COVID-19 crisis is over.
Many international students study at HSE University - Saint Petersburg's English-taught programmes. They come to Russia from different corners of the world for different reasons: to learn the Russian language, to live in a new place, or to immerse themselves in an intercultural environment. We asked several undergraduate students to share their impressions of studying at the university, interacting with classmates and lecturers, and living in Saint Petersburg.
Recently our students have returned to St. Petersburg after a six-month student exchange program. They spent a semester in China and Japan, which was quite an unusual choice. We have asked them about their journey and experience of other cultures.
