Cooperation programs (“double degree”, “students exchange”, joint educational programs”, “joint research programs”, “teacher exchange”, etc.) between universities and other educational institutions of different countries contribute to:
- academic and professional mobility of students, professionals and educators;
- improvement of quality of education offered by educational institutions (due to the need to correlate training programs and knowledge certification mechanisms);
- mutual promotion of universities-partners, as well as promotion of their educational services in their home countries and at the global level;
- exchange of best practices in the field of education;
- implementation of accompanying scientific and commercial cooperation programs;
- discovering the culture of various nations and countries;
- providing students and graduates with additional opportunities in the field of further study, qualification improvement, employment and choosing the place to work.
Due of the historically predetermined status differentiation of various countries into separate categories and because of unsubstantiated formal political barriers together with ethnic and cultural obstacles, sometimes cooperation between educational institutions located in different countries appears to be a complex task.
At the same time knowledge and science are international and inter-cultural categories. The modern globalised world is changing towards the development of equality and expansion of democratic and liberal values.
That’s why all the basic conditions for overcoming the formal barriers in the field of international educational cooperation have been met.
The BoVaSCo is ready to provide educational institutions with assistance in finding foreign partners and organising international cooperation in the field of education.
