MCU enjoys long-established ties with the University of Bayreuth, which was MCU’s first European partner to host MCU’s students for long-term exchange programs. This time the parties met to discuss the ways to expand and intensify the areas of cooperation.
Daria Milyaeva, Head of the International Relations Department, and Alexander Bazhanov, Deputy Director for academic work, talked with Dr. Schiewer of promoting the BA and MA double degree programs, encouraging staff and student exchange, and involving students in summer schools. Joint conferences and research projects are considered a crucial part of the universities’ collaboration.
