The meeting with the representatives of FHWS was organized by the German Education Center of NTU “KhPI”. The purpose was to let polytechnicians know the opportunities of studying at the German Partner-University. “Each semester ten students from KhPI have an opportunity to take the course of studies at the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt. These educational projects are financed within the framework of Erasmus+ program. According to the agreement signed by us, not only students, but also researchers and teachers can participate in exchange programs”— said associate professor Denis Meshkov, the manager of German Education Center of NTU “KhPI”.
In addition to KhPI students, university entrants and their parents came to the meeting to gain some insight into the educational programs of German University. “Recently, we observe an increased interest in the studies of German — stressed Denis Meshkov – therefore, the activities of our education center are aimed at the correspondence to these modern tendencies: only our university is willing to propose free of charge educational programs to study the German language. In addition, the students with a different level of command of this language will be given an opportunity to choose appropriate programs and teachers for themselves, including German and Austrian lecturers”.
