Israeli-Ukrainian Alliance took part in the Third Ukrainian International Education Forum
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 Shapovalova, there are about 75,000 students from 155 countries currently studying at Ukrainian universities.
Film co-production is popular around the world. Why don’t things work out for us?
The US film business does not necessarily require collaboration. While film industries of such relatively ‘small’ states like Israel and Ukraine is ‘doomed’ to co-production. IUA's Anna Zharova shares her insights about cooperation between the both states.
The right for an opinion: why Ukrainian medicine needs the practice of independent expertise
Introducing “second opinion” services will not solve all of Ukraine’s medical issues at once, but it is certainly a practice that should be adopted and promoted.
