The University of Westminster has been awarded a two-year academic cooperation grant by the British Council in Ukraine, to extend its partnership with two leading Ukrainian universities: I.I.Mechnikov Odessa National University and Ivan Franko National University of Lviv.

This grant builds on our EU Tempus award, which develops flexible and blended learning in Medicine and Biomedical Science across the Southern Caucasus. This Tempus project has been commended by the EU as the best regional project in the 20-year history of the Tempus programme.

The main aim of the new Ukraine partnership grant is to explore opportunities for the internationalisation of higher education in Ukraine, guided by Westminster’s Global Engagement Strategy and its Europe Strategy.

Westminster alumni from Ukraine will be invited to contribute to the development of guidance on international education and academic mobility in Ukrainian and English.

The project results will be published through co-authored case studies and papers for conferences and journals.
