Your Personal Page on the HSE Website

Obtaining access to edit your personal page




Your personal page is an easy-to-manage place on the HSE website that is found in the general list of university staff members. It is intended as a place for you to present your academic achievements and interests to colleagues, students and the public.

Some elements of your page are connected to HSE databases, and information might be included automatically. Do not be surprised if you find something already there before you have even started to add your own information.

Obtaining access to edit your personal page

There are two versions of your personal page on the HSE website – Russian and English. Your Russian profile will be generated automatically several days after your work contract takes effect. Once your profile is online, you can be granted access to edit it yourself by submitting an application to the HSE Office of Online Media Resources at portal@hse.ru. Access to your user profile will be activated within one business day.
Note that the access can only be granted after HR department finishes processing all relevant documents and your data appears in HSE database (in order words, if you find your name on the general list of staff it means that the data has been uploaded and you can get access to your personal profile page).

You can edit your personal webpage through your user profile on the HSE website. To open the English version of your personal webpage, you need to change its status manually (see below). It will then be checked by an English version editor and published online.

Editing your personal page




There are instructions on how to edit personal pages directly in the user profile. To see them, click the big blue button that reads ‘How it works’.

Adding new tabs

If you want to add information that does not fall under one of the suggested tabs, you can create a new tab. To do so, click the button <Add Tab>, enter a heading in Russian and/or English, and press <OK>.

You can then add the necessary information in the new tab. Click <add text> and complete the fields.

Working with the tabs

The blocks marked with a ‘lock’ are generated automatically from various HSE databases and cannot be changed, deleted or moved. Blocks not marked with this symbol can easily be moved with a mouse, and their order can be changed. You can add a new block by clicking <add text>. The new block can also be dragged to any other tab.

If you have deleted a block that is contained in one of the tabs by default and where the information is generated automatically, you can easily restore it by clicking <+> at the bottom of the tab. You will see the list of blocks that can be restored.

If you have deleted a block that was created manually, you will not be able to restore it automatically. You will have to enter the information again manually.

Please note that all changes are saved only after you press the <Save> button. If you delete something occasionally, or added something incorrectly, simply close the page without saving.


To keep the text in all tabs in one style, please use one of the following methods to add the information:

1.      Complete all tabs and fields directly in the user profile, without copying it from word processors, browser etc.;

2.      First copy the text to Notepad, then copy it from Notepad directly to the text field in the user profile;

3.      Use the <Insert from Word> button. If the text still appears different from automatically generated tabs, use the <Remove formatting> button;

4.      Copy the text using the <Insert only text> button. In this case all the formatting will be removed;

5.      After inserting the text in the text field, select the entire text and press the button <Remove formatting>.

Professional interests

Press <Add (English)>, enter the keyword, and press <Find>. You will see a list of interests with the keyword. Choose a word or word combination, and press <Select>.


The photo is uploaded from the security service database. Once a week, the Security Office sends photos to the HR Office, which uploads them to the HR database. Employees can also add a photo themselves. To do so, choose <Photo> in the personal profile. You will see the interface for uploading a photo. Press <Crop> to select the part of the image to be shown on the personal page. Press <Save>!

Please choose a recent photo that people will be able to recognize you from easily.

All courses from the curriculum must have a file with the syllabus. The syllabus should be attached to the course description either by the responsible person in the department or by the course author.

The HSE website maintains a database of publications by all university staff. All publications are added manually by their authors. Publications should be added as soon as possible after they are issued.

Below is a brief guide on how to add a publication. Please also see the full reference on adding publications.

You can add a short biography in the ‘Additional information’ field. You can also add a longer version as a separate file. To do so, choose the ‘Attach CV’ section and upload the file.

Status of the English version

While the Russian version of a personal page opens immediately, the English version needs to be checked by a website editor who verifies that the name and last name, department and position, and names of universities in the ‘Education’ field are translated and displayed correctly in English.

When you are finished adding information, change the status of the English version to ‘Ready’. The page will be checked and published within one week. If you need your page to be published urgently, please contact Maria Besova at mbesova@hse.ru.


In your user profile you can add applications, including for academic mobility or financial support to participate in academic events.
