Language & Culture Program in Saint Petersburg, Russia
This unique summer study abroad program combines intensive Russian language coursework with cultural immersion and excursions in Saint Petersburg, Russia’s cultural capital.
The program is everything I hoped for and more. I am so grateful to be studying here. At HSE, the professors are above wonderful and I learn so much from the intensive language classes.

I think my Russian improved immensely while I was in St. Petersburg, not just because of the classes but also because of the abundance of opportunities to practice on a day to day basis.
University of Massachussets
I found the cultural lectures and excursions to various sites of historical significance extremely valuable. The experience has given me a much better grasp of Russia and its people and society.
My overall impression of the program? Easily, I can say with certainty, by far one of the best summer programs I have ever had.

I highly recommend HSE 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.
