Ukrainian-Polish Academic and Student Exchange Conference

On Thursday 31 August 2017, the director of the Ukrainian State Center for International Education of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine attended the “Prospects for the Development of Polish-Ukrainian Academic and Student Exchange” conference.

Dr. Shapovalova gave a presentation in which she outlined that there are currently 738 Polish citizens studying in Ukrainian Higher Education Institutions.

The president of the “Perspektywy” Education Foundation, Mr. Valdemar Sivinsky also gave a presentation. In the near future the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and Campus France will be opening offices in Poland. In spite of that fact, “Perspektywy” will continue take on prospective international students themselves as well as cooperating with business entities providing intermediary recruitment services for prospective international students. This experience is very useful to Ukraine and as a result Mr. Sivinsky was invited to be part of the Center’s Expert Council, to which he kindly agreed and promised to share his work.

Our priority in the area of Ukrainian Higher Education is to make Ukraine a study destination of choice which will be achieved by ensuring we have a credible higher education system that can be trusted by Ukrainians, and both current and prospective international students.
