HSE Online Courses on Coursera

Since 2016, most HSE online courses published on Coursera are offered "on-demand", which means that a learner can join in at any time, as most on-demand courses are re-launched every 4 weeks.

In February 2016, HSE launched 3 Specializations on Coursera:

Each Specialization comprises 5 courses and a practice-oriented Capstone Project that allows learners to apply what they’ve learned during the Specialization courses. Capstone Project is only available to those learners who have successfully completed all the courses in the Specialization.

Learners also have an option to get a Course Certificate that confirms a successful completion of the course. In order to obtain such a Course Certificate a learner should pay a certain fee and pass all graded assignments in the course. Coursera offers a Financial Aid to those who cannot afford paying the fee, which has already helped thousands of HSE online course participants.

This type of Certificate is an quivalent of academic transcript and allows to transfer the earned credits into their home institution degree. It requires passing the final test with a live remote proctoring service (1000 rubles on 2016).

Each course itself presented on the National Open Education Platform is absolutely free for any kind of participants.
