The contest of creative videos "HED - From Russia with Love"

The first international magazine about Russian education for international applicants announces the contest of creative videos for international students studying at Russian universities.

Are you a foreign national studying in Russia? Tell your story, make a video, win a prize, and land the cover of Higher education Discovery magazine. It's up to you to choose the topic, content and design of your video.

Every year thousands of young people from all over the world come to Russia to study, get a profession, build a successful career.
