The University of International Business in Kazakhstan and the University of Dunaújváros submitted a successful grant application last year within the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility program. The two universities signed the Inter-Institutional Agreement in July 2016.

 

 

After receiving two professors from UIB in February, last week we had the chance to welcome the Head of International Cooperation Office of UIB, Ms. Assem Abdrakhmanova at the University of Dunaújváros.

 

The main aim of her visit was to receive first-hand information and impressions about UOD and Dunaújváros in order to better promote the exchange possibility among UIB students. Within the scope of the ongoing Erasmus cooperation between the two institutions, we expect to receive altogether 6 Kazakh students in the upcoming academic year in Dunaújváros: 3 in the first (fall) semester and other 3 in the second (spring) semester.

 

UOD is looking forward to receiving students and colleagues from our Kazakh partner, several of our colleagues will also pay a visit to Almaty in the hope that on the basis of the Erasmus mobilities and exchanges we can deepen the cooperation and find common research fields and projects.

5th meeting of the International Club DUE, 29th March 2017

 

Have you ever challenged yourself by repeating a tongue-twister in Hindi language? Well, participants of the 5th International Club DUE had the chance to face this challenge, and beside this they could learn interesting facts about the second most populous country, India. Mohammed Amer Pasha, Stipendium Hungaricum student from India presented his home country with special emphasis on religion, spoken languages, biggest cities – and the country’s very rich cultural life. Participants got a glimpse of the cultural stronghold of the modern India: Bollywood, one of the largest film producers in India.

 

 

Our second presenter, Polina Oleneva, exchange student from Ural Federal University in Russia, tried to show some yet unknown faces of Russia. During her presentation „Crush stereotypes about Russia” she endeavoured to prove that Russia is not only a monumental and historic country with great political power, but also a more and more modern country with lively culture, a place where young generation of the 21st century can feel at home.

 

 

The International Club DUE is a forum where Hungarian and Foreign university students and local high school students can meet eachother and exchange information and ideas about their countries and cultures. Club meetings are held on the last Wednesday in each month from 5 pm.

One of the most awaited event, the intercultural night, that already became a traditional event of each semester took place in B-club on 28th March, 2017. This time the International Relations Office together with the portuguese students organized a portuguese cultural night. The aim of the event was to get to know more about Portugal, its culture and of course, to bring together the international students of the University of Dunaújváros.

 

 

There was one presentation about the culture of Portugal which was devided of more parts and each sections had different topics like arts, music, sport, tourism and gastronomy. It was good to see how well the students are working with each other and put together the most interesting facts and things about their country. Despite the technical difficulties that appeared sometimes they were able to focus on the topics and continue to speak. We got some nice videos as well about Leiria, they city where they are from, which made the presentation more interesting for us. It was also a pleasure to invite to this event our portuguese guests coming from our partner institution, from Polytechnic of Leiria, also our other guest from Kazahkstan.

 

 

Each time when an intercultural night takes place the students who are responsible for introduce their culture are asked to cook something tradional and typical food of their country. It was the same at this time as well. The students prepared some different and really nice portuguese sweets. The portion of them was large at the first sight but after we have tasted it we were not surprised that soon the plates were empty.

 

 

Just like before, after listening to the presentations and tasting the foods an afterparty took place where the students could put their favourite musics. We turned off the lights and the party was about to start.

We would like to thank to all the portuguese students who prepared for this event. We hope that the next cultural night will be as successful as it was.

A Hungarian delegation consisting of representatives of the Hungarian Ministry of Human Resources, the Tempus Public Foundation and 13 Hungarian universities visited Moscow and Saint Petersburg between 17-20 February in order to promote the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Program and Hungarian HEIs in Russia.

 

There is a growing interest among Russian students to study abroad, and Hungary, with its high-level education and proximity to Russia can become one of the most popular destinations. This was the first occasion for such focused promotion of Hungarian higher education in Russia. The 4 days long program series offered the participating institutions the possibility to present themselves both to prospective partner institutions and to students.

The delegation participated in the ICIEP 2017 Education Fairs organised in Moscow and Saint Petersburg on 18-19 February, where our representative had the chance to meet prospective Russian students wishing to pursue their university studies in Hungary.

Beside recruitment activities, the university representatives took part in Russian-Hungarian Higher Education Forums in both cities. Mrs. Edina Szilárdi, International Relations Coordinator at the University of Dunaújváros had the chance to give a presentation about UOD and its prospering cooperation with two Russian universities, Ural Federal University and Russian State Vocational Pedagogical University, both located in Ekaterinburg. The presentation achieved its goal, several Russian universities showed interest in cooperating with our university in the framework of Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility program, and in establishing joint programs and researches.

 

In the last 3 years the University of Dunaújváros has made every endeavour to establish partnerships with Russian HEIs and to attract Russian students to UOD. We hope that this participation in ICIEP exhibitions and the Forums will contribute to achieve our goals, and we will soon be able to welcome more colleagues, full time and part-time students from Russia.
