One of the principal areas of the Kyiv International University’s activities involves the development of all types of international cooperation, its integration into the international community of universities in the framework of the Bologna process and European integration.
The usage of research results and authors’ methodologies produced by the KyIU staff and foreign academics is one of the priorities for our university. Among those one can cite the foreign language intensive learning methodology – the work of the authorship by the KyIU president, prof. Khachatur Khachaturyan, which is successfully implemented at foreign languages learning centres in Philadelphia, USA and in “Intercontact”, Belgium. The head of the Slavonic philology and linguistics subdepartment prof. Ivan Yushchuk maintains close ties with the Novi Sad and Belgrade Universities, Serbia, where the Ukrainian language is studied by his textbooks. Our English teachers work as aids for the British Council English language learning Centre in Kyiv.
The University concluded treaties with international organisations that assist in securing the teaching process by arranging specialists from a number of countries. Among them we find: the Egyptian Technical Cooperation Fund; the British Executive Service Overseas (BESO); the Civic Education Project in the framework of the Renaissance International Fund. Besides, foreign embassies’ staff accredited in Ukraine is also engaged into the teaching process. The embassies provided hardware and supported the work of circles (Arabic, Korean and Persian languages).
The efficient form of boosting the teaching process for future experts in international relations is the participation of the KyIU’s students’ teams in the national and international “The International Students’ Court” competitions that are conducted exclusively in English with the adherence of international requirements adopted in the Netherlands and USA for such traditional events. During the recent half-decade the KyIU students have been winners in the national competition rounds on International Law. They will represent Ukraine in the Hague, the Netherlands and Washington, USA.
The setup of researches joint with international educational establishments is in the mainstream of the University’s activity. A prolific cooperation is being carried out with academics and researchers affiliated with the Tokyo Peoples’ Friendship University, Japan, the Moscow State Lomonosov University, Russia, the Modern Languages Higher School for translators in the Bologna University, Italy, the Lisbon University, Portugal, “La Sapienza” University of Rome, Italy, the Jinan and Nankai Universities, PRC.
Professors and associate professors affiliated with KyIU take part in developing international cooperation programs.
