The Faculty has been fostering cordial and increasingly intensive relations with long-established universities of Europe. Moreover, relations of varying intensity are cultivated with over a hundred other universities, including some in the People’s Republic of China and the United States. Dynamic efforts have also been made to reinvigorate contacts with universities in neighbouring countries. In harmony with general European tendencies and global challenges, the inter-university relations emphasize the mobility programmes for students and instructors, courses conducted in foreign languages, and the educational and research networks. The Faculty has scored impressive results in the latter field.
Our international relations take various forms – as bilateral and multi-lateral contacts, EU programmes, cooperation agreements between faculties, etc. – and are realized under various financing arrangements. Within the framework of relations between university departments and on the basis of invitations, instructors of the Faculty take part in research and mobility programmes, conferences and study trips mostly at European universities. Occasionally they respond to invitations from China and the US as visiting lecturers.
