Alliance’s CEO Anna Zharova joined the Forum as a speaker for the panel International education as a key vector of Ukraine's expansion in the world by the Global Ukraine Foundation talking about community building practices as development drivers for Israel’s higher education. 


In recent years, Israel and Ukraine have been compared a lot, and higher education is no exception. The percentage of students seeking to study in higher-educational institutions is very high in both countries. In Israel, it’s quite common when choosing the university to look not only at its world ranking and teaching staff, but also at its student community, an alumni club that you automatically join upon admission. Ukraine has also started to create and develop such communities, and this is a big step forward, she Anna Zharova in her speech. 


The Ukrainian International Education Forum is one of the largest educational events in Ukraine, which each year brings together key industry experts to expand Ukraine’s educational opportunities for foreign students. This year the Forum was held online on April 22-23. 


The main topics of this year’s Forum were current internationalization trends in modern education, creating better conditions for foreign students coming to study in Ukraine, developing international communication, as well as educational marketing. 


Speaking during the two days of the Forum were leading Ukrainian and foreign educational managers, diplomats, scientists, and international education experts. 


The first day of the event was also attended by the Ambassador of the State of Israel to Ukraine Joel Lyon, who told the audience about Israeli-Ukrainian relations in the field of education, praised the work of the Ukrainian State Center for International Education (USCIA), and shared positive impressions of Israeli students from studying in Ukraine. 


According to statistics unveiled during the Forum by USCIA’s Director Olena Shapovalovathere are about 75,000 students from 155 countries currently studying at Ukrainian universities.
