"Higher School of Economics and Saint-Petersburg in my eyes"

My name is Zhang Caiyu, I'm a graduate student of Higher School of Economics in Saint-Petersburg, where I study master’s program 'Experience Economy: Hospitality and Tourism Management'. Actually, I completed my bachelor’s degree in Ukraine, Kiev. My major was Russian language, so in the end of my study I decided to continue my education in Russia. I browsed several universities' websites and the university that at once attracted my attention was Higher School of Economics. I had an impression that it’s completely different from the traditional Russian universities, as it’s truly modern, internationalized, open and, what is the most important, actively developing educational institution. I’ve never experienced such a unique approach to education used here, but I was enthusiastic to try it, I even had a feeling that HSE is the university, where I always dreamt to study. Therefore, without any doubts I applied for a study in HSE, and after completing all the formalities I was successfully enrolled. In September 2017 my wish was fulfilled, I arrived at St. Petersburg and now I can say It was “love at first sight”.
