HSE students` voices:
Patric Whelan (Canada)
I’ve lived all over the world, and was always interested in Russian culture, so I decided to give it a real try by studying here for two years. On top of gaining experience to Russian culture, being able to live and study in a beautiful city like Moscow is a real bonus. I chose HSE because everything I read said that HSE was a top university. However, my choice was mainly dependent on the programme and the Master of Population and Development sounded exactly like I wanted – and it didn’t disappoint. And, of course, getting a scholarship to study for free was also a major factor
Pablo Goldin Markovich (Mexico)
After I graduated from Architecture School in Mexico City, I worked in different architecture bureaus particularly, Estudio MMX, where I had the opportunity to collaborate in different projects from editorial design to housing projects and city scaled master planning. Through this experience I understood how wide the field of architecture practice can be. I wanted to complement my studies with other disciplines related to urban studies so that I have a larger understanding of the system in which architectural and urban design are embedded. The programme ‘Prototyping Future Cities’ appealed to me because of its interdisciplinary approach, the possibility to experiment and the strong research and economics focus of the HSE university.
