Students have a quicker path to Ukraine starting this summer thanks to a new agreement between MacEwan University and a Ukrainian University.
The agreement will allow students and faculty from specific programs, such as sociology, to study abroad in similar programs.
“It gives a far richer learning experience to the modern student then what was there in the past,” said Roman Petryshyn of the Ukrainian Resource Development Centre (URDC) at MacEwan University.
The National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy has been working with MacEwan for almost two decades and officials say the partnership will be a good transition for local students.
The funding for the partnership—$30,000 per year— was provided by a private endowment.
