School’s Out for Summer!... Wait, Is It?

What happens to our university campus when summer arrives and lectures are over? Does the cafeteria close, and are the tumbleweeds rolling all over the place? This is not the case! Saint Petersburg HSE Summer School 2018 begins, bringing our beloved red brick walls to life.

School’s Out for Summer!... Wait, Is It?


Why would anyone ever choose to study during the summer break, you might ask?

Firstly, HSE University - St. Petersburg offers unique summer courses that are worth going back to the classroom for. Social and Political Sciences, Cultural and Creative Industries, Business Analytics, Economics and Business, Russian Studies, Data Analysis and History – there are more than 15 courses to choose from. Moreover, there is no need to compromise your passion for Russian foreign politics or your deep appreciation for data analysis: why not take both? Most of our courses last a week, and can easily be combined.

Secondly, the Summer School is a chance to be a part of a unique international community. In addition to an international team of lecturers, HSE Saint Petersburg has welcomed summer students from all over Europe, America, CIS, as well as the BRIC countries. With English being the language of instruction, the Summer School  is opened for applicants from all over the world, as well as to local students, who have a fantastic opportunity to practice their English.

Last, but not least: the city of Saint Petersburg is especially exciting and vibrant in these warm summer months. Our students will see the famous canals at the Welcome Dinner, visit the beautiful Peterhof, and explore the city day and night with the help of Erasmus Student Network members.

Already looking forward to the Summer School? Meet the team and learn more about the programme at our webinar on 12th April, 2018 at 16:00 Saint Petersburg time (GMT +3).  Go to https://goo.gl/Yjzu15 to register and ask any questions you may have.

‘I highly recommend HSE University - St. Petersburg to any prospective international students. Saint Petersburg is one-of-a-kind, and the quality of the academics here is on par with those found at my home university. My only regret? That I cannot stay here longer’.
