The Higher School of Economics (HSE) in Moscow is one of the leading universities in Russia and offers an excellent range of courses on the history of Russia and the Soviet Union. Students (Bachelor, Master, PhD) can apply for a study visit.
Due to the war of aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, the Bavarian State Government has advised Bavarian universities to suspend cooperations with the Russian Federation. Thus the cooperation with the HSE will be adjourned until further notice.
PhD students can also apply for an exchange with the European University Institute in Florence.
- The general guidelines of the Department of History (German) apply to the application for an ERASMUS scholarship.
- Further information on exchange visits is also available from the International Affairs Office at the Central Workspace for LMU students.
