A new study by Evgeniia Shmeleva and Egor Sagitov of the IOE Center for Sociology of Higher Education explores how the way that university coursework and instruction are designed is related to the odds of dishonesty in students. The analysis involves a massive sample of 17,300 bachelor's and specialist’s students from as many as 291 Russian universities. The paper is published in the ‘Educational Studies’ journal.

To successfully defend a doctoral dissertation, PhD candidates need not only the support of their academic supervisor and close friends and relatives, but also system-wide assistance from the university department or faculty where they study. However, HSE University researchers have found that such support can take different forms and that each has a different effect on how confident a student feels in their ability to successfully defend their dissertation. The results of their study were published in the journal Higher Education Quarterly.
