70 students from Ukraine begin “European Union” studies in LU SZF

29 вересня 2020 року

Each year, the Political Science Division of the University of Latvia's Faculty of Social Sciences (LU SZF), in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Latvia, hosts students from various Ukrainian universities in an intensive training three-month-long intensive module the Young professionals` school: “Studies of the European Union – Internal and Foreign Policy”. This year, the project will be implemented from 20th September to 18th December 2020. The studies will take place in English and are meant for Ukrainian students who obtain or have already obtained higher education.

The European Studies module consists of two integrated parts: Foreign Affairs (in which courses such as Europeanization: from partnership to membership will be learned and foundation of the European Union) and Domestic Affairs (governance and management of the European Union, politics and policy in Latvia, strategic communication and public diplomacy). For each module passed, students will receive an internationally recognised certificate from the University of Latvia. The school of young professionals is designed for both bachelor's and master's level students as well as doctoral students who can choose modules based on their academic interests and needs.

The Young professionals` school will be implemented online, enabling a large number of students to be brought together. Together, more than 60 applications from students from various prestigious universities in Ukraine have been received such as V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, Yaroslaw Mudryi National Law University, Poltava Law Institute, Oles Honchar Dnipro National University, Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, Institute for International Relations of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University and others.

On September 21, the students started their courses with a joint introductory lecture on the Zoom platform, where they were addressed by Professor Iveta Reinholde, head of the Political Science Division. Students had the opportunity to familiarise themselves with future agendas and the format of future studies, to ask questions of interest, and to meet each other.

We wish the students' have productive future months and experience-rich studies!
