Anna Tyshetskaya: 'Don’t Be Afraid To Dream Big!'
The admission campaign for 2022 has officially started. Anna Tyshetskaya, Director of HSE-St Petersburg, tells us what's new on the campus and what it offers to students today.
FOUR CAMPUSES, ONE UNIVERSITY
As part of HSE University, the St Petersburg campus offers the same high-quality education as any other campus. Our students have access to all of HSE University's resources, and they regularly take part in unified scholarships and social support programmes.
That said, the St Petersburg campus is unique. This can be seen through its academic areas, educational programmes and learning environment. HSE-St Petersburg is known as the best university in the city. In 2021, it was ranked first in the city and fourth in the country in terms of the quality of state-funded admissions. We enrol motivated young people who know what they want to achieve in their future careers. HSE-St Petersburg is the perfect place for those who want to get the best education and study in St Petersburg, explore its unique urban and cultural environment.
The campus itself also boasts a unique environment that has developed based on a relationship of trust between faculty members and students. When young people become students at HSE University, they immediately dive into an atmosphere of creativity, get to know classmates who share their love of the city and the university.
It has been quite a long time since HSE University ceased to be oriented around just economics. This year, the St Petersburg campus welcomes applicants to 14 Bachelor's and 24 Master's programmes. In addition to economics, the campus offers programmes in philology and physics, design and Asian languages, law and media communications, social and computer sciences, and much more. Most of our programmes are based on a combination of several subject areas, one of which is usually connected to digitalisation and IT. Enrolling in such programmes is the most powerful investment one can make in their future career or education.
This year, the pool of our Bachelor's programmes has been enriched with four new ones. We are the first university in Russia to launch an International Bachelor's programme in Business and Economics in partnership with VK and to provide our students with the opportunity to get a diploma in two areas of studies at once: Economics and Management (Double major). We are also launching the following Bachelor’s Programmes: Applied Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence, Digital Platforms and Logistics in partnership with Ozon (held online), and Media Communications.
In addition, we are opening a Master's degree programme in Design, creating a complete educational cycle in this highly sought-after field.
With a focus on the East becoming another trend in the new economy, we have doubled the number of state-funded places in the Master's programme 'Business and Politics in Modern Asia' and are launching a Russian-speaking track.
This is a track for those who plan to work with partners not only from China, Korea or Japan, but also with representatives of the EAEU and CIS countries.
KEEPING AN EYE ON THE LABOUR MARKET
It is very important to us that our educational programmes are practice-oriented, so that students gain valuable experience and hands-on skills during their studies. We actively involve our students in project activities based on the campus laboratories and research centres and in solving business cases from our partners. Each programme has its own industrial partners who work with a programme’s supervisors to participate in its design, organise internships and work placements, provide scholarship support for academic mobility, and offer their own business cases for projects.
Every project realised is the result of teamwork between undergraduate and graduate students, doctoral students, and teachers. We are incredibly proud of our teachers, who are not only great scientists, but also internationally recognised consummate professionals.
For them, working and communicating with students is the key value when it comes to professional activity.
HSE-St Petersburg is an environment that motivates you to grow and learn and creates optimal conditions for education, self-determination and personal development.
