Visa and Accomodation Information

According to Russian migration laws, students must begin their studies not later than 30 days before their student entry visas expire. HSE offers accommodation to applicants in the university’s dormitories. Foreign citizens must register with migration services within 3 business days of their arrival.

Applicant should arrive with the original versions of all of the documents that they submitted for their application, as well as 7 photos (4х6 cm) and 4 photos (3х4 cm).

All traveling and medical insurance expenses are covered by the applicant, sponsor, or sponsoring organization.

Applicants arriving at HSE should coordinate the date and details of their arrival with the Office for Doctoral Programmes (aspirantura@hse.ru).

Upon arrival, the applicant should go to the Office of Doctoral Programmes, which will prepare an order for enroling the applicant for 6 months to take exams and, if necessary, recognizing the applicant’s education documents.

If the applicant passes the exams and his or her documents are recognized, the applicant will be enrolled for the whole term. The first 6 months are then included in the general term of study.

If you have any questions regarding your application, we recommend that you contact the school, division, or department that you are applying to. You can find contact information for specific doctoral schools, as well as for the Office of Doctoral Studies, here.

We hope to welcome you to HSE soon!
