Community Life in Perm

Aside from sharing academic interests and being involved in research and education, the HSE-Perm team enjoys a vibrant community life. Different clubs, cultural events, outdoor activities and other projects enrich the extra-curricular time of the faculty, students, staff and university guests.

HSE-Perm’s community events are usually open to all the members of the University and often to the general public as well, though some may require registration prior to the event. There is a number of activities, such as festivals, concerts, sports and travel which can be enjoyed regardless of your language proficiency in Russian. Some projects and clubs require a better understanding of the language, and can provide a good platform for socializing and networking, exchanging information with colleagues and improving your Russian. Naturally, some community events at HSE require fluent knowledge of Russian in order to participate in them fully. This guide will provide an overview of community life activities at HSE according to the level of Russian language proficiency needed for participation and the type of activities.

Events are announced on the HSE-Perm website, by email and on our bulletin boards.

Open Lectures and Workshops

A university is not only an educational and academic campus; it is a source of new and bright ideas, as well as projects that define a city’s social and cultural space. HSE holds events within the university that are open to anyone, like lectures on various subjects ranging from history to cinema, music and fashion, which have already become a popular and beloved part of the University’s community life. Through its new project “University Open to the City” HSE holds a number of open lectures and presents a new style of educational activity. These talks give participants an opportunity to listen to lectures by the University’s scholars on the most interesting topics, and HSE speakers get a chance to share ideas with a wider audience and get their feedback. Open lectures are usually given in summer.

Working language – Russian


Cultural clubs

Although the current working language of the HSE-Perm cultural projects is Russian, the majority of participants have good English skills and are able to share impressions and opinions and hold a discussion with international faculty and students. The Cultural clubs of HSE-Perm provide a perfect place for socializing with local colleagues and students. They also give a unique opportunity for improving your Russian through discussion, small talk, watching movies etc.

The majority of cultural projects are implemented by students with the support of their mentors. These projects bring together talented people who are eager to study and develop the cultural life of the University and the city. The goal of each project is to exchange knowledge and practical experience without any borders between students, lecturers and guests.

Independent Cinema Club

The Independent cinema club is an open venue for watching and discussing really interesting films with like-minded persons.

Different people consider different films interesting: some like detective films, some like science fiction. While others prefer historic or intellectual films and dramas.

Generally speaking, a good film cannot be referred to a certain genre. Let’s say: in the Independent cinema club everyone will find what he or she likes best. For here are presented the films of absolutely different genres, topics and moods. They are pretty topical, but at the same time they are not shopworn.

The Independent cinema club also has special offers, for example, a month dedicated to films of a certain director.

The club sessions are held twice a month.
