The HSE St. Petersburg administration has issued an order ‘On the specifics of organizing the educational process with the participation of students and postgraduates of HSE University – St. Petersburg in the 2021–2022 academic year’. The order outlines measures to protect students from COVID-19 for the 2021/2022 academic year.
This fall HSE University – Saint Petersburg resumes most classes in person. The state borders of the Russian Federation remain closed for entry of most foreign citizens except for five countries (Abkhazia, United Kingdom, Tanzania, Turkey, and Switzerland). For those students who are unable to enter Russia the university will arrange online instruction.
Classes will begin on-campus on September 1 (for some graduate programmes on October 1), and wearing masks in university buildings and dormitories will be mandatory for all students and teachers. HSE University will arrange online learning with mandatory support from professors for newly enrolled international students who are currently unable to travel to Russia.
The restrictions were introduced in March as one of the measures aimed at preventing coronavirus infections from spreading.
All HSE students and graduate students will have the week from March 28 to April 5, 2020, off. HSE Rector Yaroslav Kuzminov has signed the relevant order.
