  • “Russia and Europe: linguistic and cultural interaction” (together with the University of Innsbruck (Austria) and UNIMI (Milan, Italy));
  • “Russian Culture” (together with the Ruhr University (Bochum, Germany).

From 2007 to 2019 76 HSEC students completed a semester internship at the Ruhr University, 107 students and graduate students from Germany, Austria and Italy completed internships at the HSEC. 57 Russian and 24 foreign students received master's degrees from two universities.
