The Centre for Youth Studies organized a course 'Urban Youth Cultures' for students of Aarhus University (Denmark). The faculty of the Department of Sociology and a student of the programme 'Modern Social Analysis' talk about the Denmark students' research topics and distance learning.
What is happening in these difficult times is undoubtedly a challenge for the education sector in general, but especially for international education. We admire the courage and creativity of our colleagues and students from all over the world, not only for staying home but also for staying curious and keeping their thirst for knowledge. The closure of the state border should not become an obstacle to the acquisition of new knowledge and cultural exchange experience. Like many other educational projects, we came to a responsible decision to move Saint Petersburg HSE Summer School online.
In January, Saint Petersburg HSE Winter School hosted a group of students from Smith College, the United States. Besides courses on Russian culture and history, they had an intense programme: weekends in Moscow, going to a theatre and numerous museums, watching a hockey game, and much more. We asked some Winter School participants about their experience in Saint Petersburg and how it affected them.
HSE University – Saint Petersburg Summer School offers a wide range of courses corresponding to different students’ interests. However, Summer School is not only about studies: eventful programme, exploring the Cultural Capital of Russia during the white nights, meeting new friends from all over the world – this is not a complete list of reasons to participate in St. Petersburg HSE Summer School.
Already in its fourth year, HSE University – St Petersburg International Summer School commenced this past week on July 1. During the next 13 weeks (actually, it goes beyond the summer session) students from all around the globe will enhance their knowledge in a wide range of fields.
With multidisciplinary topics and an exciting cultural programme, the summer school offers an opportunity to obtain useful skills, explore the city of St Petersburg, and meet new friends from different countries. This year, participants are invited to choose from a wider range of academic fields – from social science and design to data analysis and programming.
From January 3 to 20, 23 students from three American universities took part in a special winter programme held for the third time at HSE University – St Petersburg. We asked them many questions, including what they thought about Russia before coming here, what they would take back home, and one of the eternal questions – Moscow or St Petersburg?
Borscht, Dostoevsky and Nightclubs. What Else Exchange Students Like about Russia and St Petersburg?
There is always so much to see, taste or experience when you are abroad. Just before setting off home to enjoy Christmas holidays with their families, exchange students from University College London (UCL) shared their feelings about Russian food, language peculiarities, clubbing and many more.
Under the ‘Study Abroad Programme in Russian Language and Culture’ students improve their language proficiency and explore the Russian cultural heritage. Recently, they have been to Veliky Novgorod.
'HSE Allowed Me to Get to Know People from Different Backgrounds, Whether They Worked for The Red Cross or Studied Shipbuilding'
