On August 21st, Saint Petersburg HSE Summer School, which has been taking place since 2017, came to a close. This year it moved online due to the pandemic. 44 participants from 18 countries, including France, Ireland, the USA, the Philippines, China, and others were joining Zoom during four weeks. The organisers of the Summer School were happy to welcome students of 15 HSE partner universities such as Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, King’s College London, Sciences Po Lyon, University of Basel, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, and others.
HSE University – Saint Petersburg Summer School offers a wide range of courses corresponding to different students’ interests. However, Summer School is not only about studies: eventful programme, exploring the Cultural Capital of Russia during the white nights, meeting new friends from all over the world – this is not a complete list of reasons to participate in St. Petersburg HSE Summer School.
With multidisciplinary topics and an exciting cultural programme, the summer school offers an opportunity to obtain useful skills, explore the city of St Petersburg, and meet new friends from different countries. This year, participants are invited to choose from a wider range of academic fields – from social science and design to data analysis and programming.
