Higher School of Economics Moscow (Bachelor and Master's Students)

The exchange program with the National Research University Higher School of Economics Moscow grants bachelor’s and master’s students the opportunity to spend a semester or an academic year at one of the best universities in Russia.

Program Costs and Financing

Students taking part in the HSE exchange program are exempted from paying tuition fees at the Higher School of Economics in Mosow, but students are responsible for providing their own funds for living costs and travel expenses. HSE Moscow provides information on the cost of living in Moscow here.

Should you be selected for the HSE exchange program, we recommend you to apply for a LMU Prosa-Scholarship (German). However, please note that Prosa provides only a small stipend, which might not sufficiently cover all costs associated with the program.


Applicants for the HSE exchange program should exhibit good performance during their studies, as well as good English language skills (min. B2). As HSE offers a great number of courses taught in English, basic Russian language skills are defenitly a plus, but not required.

Detailed information regarding the application for exchange programs through the LMU Department of Economics can be found under "Application".

If you would like to apply, we recommend that you visit us during office hours for further information and consultation. Please find information on our office hours under "Contact".
