Doctoral School of Computer Science

Doctoral School of Computer Science

The Doctoral School offers doctoral programmes of study in a number of key areas of Computer Science. In uniting doctoral students from several scientific and academic divisions of HSE Moscow and HSE Nizhny Novgorod, the School ensures that a unified space is created at the university to conduct research in the field of computer science.


How to apply? What documents to submit?

  • Copies of education certificates with supplements (e.g. diploma and transcript with a list of courses and final grades). All documents must be translated, notarized, and legalized in the country where the applicant studied.

In addition, you have to fill the online application form for recognition of foreign credentials: http://www.hse.ru/admissions/accepted/#recognition

  • List of publications and paper copies of publications.

If you do not have any publications, you must submit an abstract on your future research.

  • CD with publications or an abstract.
  • Letter of recommendation from the prospective thesis advisor.
  • Letter of recommendation from the head of the doctoral school.
  • 4 photos (3x4cm)

 

Hard copies of all documents must be sent via registered mail to Higher School of Economics, Office of Doctoral programmes, 20, Myasnitskaya, Moscow, Russia, 101000.

At our University, we have a special programme for HSE doctoral students called "Full-time Advanced Doctoral Programme".  The degree that you obtain in the end is the same in both cases (Candidate of Science), but there are some differences in the admission process, as well as in the study process.

 

As a PhD student enrolled in this programme, you will have a scholarship of 30 000 roubles a month, funding for research internships abroad, and part-time job opportunities within HSE research projects. However, you will not be allowed to work for other organizations.

 

If you are interested in applying for the Full-time Advanced Doctoral Programme you must submit some additional documents, see http://aspirantura.hse.ru/en/acad_asp/docs.

Questions about this programme should be addressed to the programme manager Elena Victorova.

‘Making It to This Forum Is Already an Incredible Feat’

For the first time ever, a doctoral student of the Higher School of Economics took part in the Heidelberg Laureate Forum, the world’s largest forum for young researchers in the fields of mathematics and computer science. Over the course of one week, the participants were able to meet and discuss their projects with laureates of awards such as the Fields Medal, Abel Prize, and Turing Award. Olga Tsukanova represented HSE at the Forum, bringing with her a project on mathematical modelling.
