The Academic Writing Center offers a variety of courses in face-to-face, blended, and online formats, targeted on different levels of language proficiency. We cater to the needs of our clients, so we update our programs each year. 

The courses are free for HSE employees.

We kindly ask you to apply for the courses only if you are sure that you can attend all classes and complete homework assignments. Drop-outs will not be allowed to repeat the program.

The main criterion for course admission is your motivation letter. We offer recommendations on how to write a strong motivation letter here.
