The Full-time Advanced Doctoral Programme is a special programme for HSE doctoral students. The main feature of the programme is an obligatory educational part. During the first year of study, doctoral students take advanced courses in basic professional disciplines, as well as courses developing their academic knowledge and skills. The second year includes specialized courses, which are partly taught at HSE, and partly at international universities.

The Programme is similar to international post-graduate programmes, such as PhD programmes at U.S. universities, and not only includes an obligatory educational part, but also presumes that students will spend their full working day at their faculty, department, or research centre. This means that they take an active part in events organized by the research department. This requirement aims to focus doctoral students on academic development and better adjust them to the academic environment.
