Much has been said about online education over the last year. What used to be perceived as a challenge a few months ago has become a new comfort zone and does not impress anyone. Indeed, during the pandemic, we have proved that persistence, professionalism, and flexibility bring good results even when the world is turned upside-down. Having had a successful experience of hosting the St. Petersburg HSE Summer School online, the university introduces HSE – St. Petersburg International Research School, a new project encouraging students all over the world to explore different areas — from Russia’s role in international relations to social, cultural, gender aspects of Russia’s historical experience, and even to the burning issue of what global business is going to be like when the COVID-19 crisis is over.
This year, HSE University’s EU Model game and conference will be an intercampus event that will be held online. The organizers are confident that the event will attract students in Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, and Perm who are interested in European policy, EU law and international relations.

HSE University - Saint Petersburg organizes free vaccination for students which will take place from September 14 to October 27. According to Rospotrebnadzor (The Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing), Russia is expecting simultaneous circulation of four strains of the flu virus and a new coronavirus wave. This increases the risks to the population health, so preventive immunization is a needed solution.
