New horizons of international cooperation with Poland

On January 24, 2017 the delegation of the Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical University of Oil and Gas (IFNTUOG), composed of: the rector, academician of NAS of Ukraine Ye. Kryzhanivskyi and Director of the Institute of Humanities and Public Administration, Professor D. Dzvinchuk, visited the Jan Długosz University of Częstochowa (Poland) with the aim of deepening the cooperation between universities through bilateral Agreement of 31.10.2016. The agreement provides for cooperation in the field of exchange of students and ensures opportunities for students of both institutions for international exchanges and / or parallel study in higher education establishments as well as obtaining a dual diploma in certain directions. Among other directions of cooperation highlighted in the agreement are joint research in the framework of scientific programs and grants, organization of joint conferences and scientific workshops, publication of joint articles and scientific monographs, and the like.

Since the framework provisions of this Agreement are public, that is, the Parties may enter into a separate agreement in the form of amendments, it leaves universities a wide room for maneuver. Thus, during the meeting with the rector of the Academy, Professor Anna Wypych-Gawrońska the parties discussed issues of joint training of masters of local self-government and specialists in English Philology ("Translation and Interpreting") and Polish studies. The negotiations, according to members of the delegation of the IFNTUOG, were successful. The University hopes for the new stage of cooperation with the Polish University, which will be extremely helpful for both universities.

Our delegates had a tour around the old city, which is famous for its monastery with the miraculous icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa.
