In 2010, HSE launched its first research laboratories where academic supervision is conducted jointly by renowned leading international and HSE researchers. HSE’s doctoral students have an opportunity to join research projects at these laboratories or write their papers under the supervision of the laboratories’ staff. International laboratories enrol doctoral students together with other academic departments at HSE.
International applicants pay a tuition fee in the amount of 489 000 RUB per year upon enrolment.
