Programme Academic Supervisor
Every programme has an academic supervisor. The academic supervisor is the main person responsible for studies, courses, and lecturers in your curriculum. The academic supervisor’s contact information is published on the programme website, so feel free to write or call them.
Every programme also has an academic council led by the academic supervisor. Together they develop the programme’s academics, research, and other activities
Your group leader is a student who has taken on additional responsibilities. Group leaders solve organizational issues and act as intermediaries between their classmates and the Study Office.
Do you have what it takes to be a group leader? Ask your study office about the appointment process in your group.
The Learning Management System (LMS) is an HSE University’s integrated educational information space.
The most important info:
Your login: your university email address
Initial password: the number of your student ID card (no dots, slashes, etc.).
The system will ask you to change this automatic password after your first login.
In your personal LMS account, you will only see the courses you are registered for.
Through LMS you can also access your electronic grade book which doesn’t go in a classic hard copy version.
There is a number of fancy things you can do in LMS:
- enroll in courses;
- study learning materials;
- perform different types of academic activities (upload assignments, term papers, pass tests);
- communicate with teachers, study offices and other students.
To learn about LMS opportunities and how to use them, please, attend LMS instructional course during your Orientation session. For more information visit the webpage.
