Universities prepare to join Bologna process

Belarusian universities are getting ready to join the Bologna process, the first protector of the Belarusian State University Mikhail Zhuravkov told reporters before the opening of an international seminar titled “Erasmus Mundus as a Catalyst for Internationalisation: Sharing best practices and exploring future perspectives”, reports BelTA.

“I am convinced that Belarus will join the Bologna process in 2015. The country has been getting ready for it for a long time already. No doubt, all our students are looking forward to it. In order to join the Bologna process, our universities have to comply with certain requirements, like teaching disciplines in English, new courses for foreign students etc. Now we have plans to introduce new inter-disciplinary courses in English,” Zhuravkov said.

Belarusian State University regularly takes part in various contests organised within the framework of international educational programmes. In 2013 alone, 15 new projects were implemented at the university with the purpose of academic exchange of students, teachers and scientists between universities in former Soviet states and the European Union.
