Bath Spa University partners with Ukrainian university to support post-war recovery – FE News


Bath Spa University is partnering with a higher education institution, Academician Stepan Demyanchuk International University of Economics and Humanities (MUEG), as part of a program to help the western Ukrainian university continue to survive and develop beyond the current conflict facing the country. .

The initiative is part of a wider UK-Ukraine university twinning scheme launched by Cormack Consultancy Group (CCG) and Universities UK International (UUKi), which sees UK universities sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with their Ukrainian counterparts over a minimum of five years.

The support offered by Bath Spa University includes the sharing of learning resources, the development of a mentoring scheme and collaboration across disciplines taught or researched at both institutions. Where possible, both universities look forward to facilitating staff and student exchanges.

David Newman, Secretary of the University, said: “The University of Bath Spa stands in solidarity with Ukraine and we are pleased to collaborate with IUEH in such a way as to provide support and strengthen bonds of friendship and cooperation through the development of academic, cultural and personal exchange.

“This partnership builds on our existing collaboration with IUEH, which began in 2018 as part of our Erasmus+-funded DESTIN project aimed at improving journalism education in Ukraine. Colleagues from IUEH visited Bath as part of this project and we look forward to a bright future where we hope to welcome them back to the city.”

Vitaly Demianchuk, rector of IUEU, added: “It is a great honor for us to work with such a respected institution as Bath Spa; a university with which we have maintained a strong relationship for many years.

“We would like to express our gratitude to the people of the United Kingdom and the management of Bath Spa University for choosing to become a partner of our institution. We will do everything we can to ensure the longevity of our collaboration to positively impact our future generations.”

The University of Bath Spa took part in an official signing ceremony held for all sister institutions on 28 June 2022. On the same day, the UK Government also announced £190,000 in funding to show its commitment to establishing and supporting the scheme .
