Orientation session usually takes place in mid-August (this year, however, the sessions were held online due to the pandemic restrictions)
All international students should attend Orientation session in order to learn a lot of useful information about living and studying in Russia and better integrate into HSE student life.
Orientation Session is aimed at supporting you in your adaptation to HSE and life in Moscow, as well as sharing tips on how to become a successful student. It will also help you become part of our community.

ESN buddies are Russian-speaking HSE University students who are happy to offer assistance to all international students at the University who don't speak Russian. A buddy can give you advice on student life, help with language barriers that you might encounter, as well as become a good friend you may want to stay in touch with long after you finish your studies at HSE.
