How to Transfer: HSE St Petersburg Introduces Online Service
December is one of the two months during the year when students can transfer to HSE from other academic institutions. To facilitate this process, HSE University has introduced an online service for those seeking a transfer.
If a student is interested in transferring to HSE, he/she must select a programme at the University, visit its webpage, and check the transition period, as well as the availability of any vacant slots. Please note that there are certain restrictions for students on Russian government full-tuition scholarships (i.e., ‘quotas’). The programme webpages also list the terms of competitions for students willing to transfer, the exams that need to be taken, and the relevant assessment criteria.
Students can transfer to HSE from other institutions in either June or December. Each educational programme may have their own transfer procedures in place and offer another transition period. After students have familiarized themselves with the terms for transfer, they may apply through the online service.
As such, a student must complete the online form and attach all of the necessary documents. Please note that this is NOT an official transfer application; these papers are necessary to determine whether a transfer is possible or not. If a student’s request is confirmed, he/she may apply at the programme study office. For HSE students interested in switching programmes at the University itself, a different transfer procedure is in place.
