International Student Arrivals
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.
Students from five countries (as for 27.08.2020) – Abkhazia, United Kingdom, Tanzania, Turkey, and Switzerland – will have their classes in the same format as students from Russia. To find relevant information about the studies, students should visit webpages of their degree programmes and follow the course schedule. HSE University – Saint Petersburg will be arranging distance learning for international students from other countries.
Due to the current epidemiological situation, many students have questions regarding entering the Russian Federation, medical requirements, observing quarantine upon arrival, and migration and visa issues. Answers to most frequently asked questions can be found on an International Office webpage, which is regularly updated.
