EuroPIM Virtual Master School Ukraine (EU-ViMUk)

FH Dortmund has received the project funding to support the students and teachers of the Ukrainian partner universities. 

Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts has been cooperating with three Ukrainian universities for several years, primarily in the area of Master’s degree programmes and doctoral student exchanges: the West Ukrainian National University (WUNU) in Ternopil, the Kyiv National University of Construction and Architecture (KNUCA), the National University “Zaporizhzhia Polytechnic” (NU-ZP) and recently Lviv Polytechnic National University (LPNU).

In order to maintain the teaching of the Master’s programmes in Ukraine in the winter semester and to support the Ukrainian teachers with digital infrastructure, teaching materials, and fees or salaries, both in Dortmund and in Ukraine, the EuroPIM Virtual Master School Ukraine (EU-ViMUk) has been developed. 

In terms of the project, up to 16 new teaching modules will be converted into e-learning modules, which will be taught online in the winter semester for Ukrainian students who do not have the opportunity to participate in face-to-face teaching in Ukraine. In addition, scholarships will be allocated to help students and doctoral candidates. 

Up till this point, already 21 students have received online scholarships. 6 scholarships are planned for long-term-stay, so the students, who are currently located in Germany, have a chance to continue studying in their universities.  Other fundings are also being allocated for PhD long-term research stays and for Ukrainian teachers, who continue offering courses in their universities. 

As a result, we strive to promote the integration of Ukraine into the European Higher Education Area and to create all the conditions for the students to continue their educational process.
