Belarus, Sudan intend to develop cooperation in education

MINSK, 7 August (BelTA) - The national children's educational and health recuperation center Zubrenok hosted a meeting between Belarus’ Education Minister Igor Karpenko and Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Dr. Somaya Abo Kashwa. The talks were also attended by First Deputy Education Minister Vadim Bogush, Rector of the National Institute of Vocational Education Valery Golubosvky and rectors of the Sudanese universities, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian Education Ministry.

“Having signed a bilateral agreement on close cooperation in different venues, including science and education, our leaders gave a fresh impetus to our cooperation. We see this visit as the next practical step. We are glad that our desire to work together in education is mutual,” Igor Karpenko said.

Sudanese Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Dr. Somaya Abo Kashwa expressed confidence that the ties between the universities in Belarus and Sudan will be established as soon as possible. “If our universities establish direct links, then we will implement the plans to expand the students and teachers’ exchange programs much faster,” he said.

Igor Karpenko stressed that the Belarusian universities are willing to cooperate in many areas, including the improvement of training of Arabic language teachers and the organization of internship programs for Sudanese students in Belarusian universities. He also noted that Belarus has decided to expand the list of specialties and specializations of the master’s program where the language of instruction is English. “This trend opens up new prospects for foreign students. We can achieve good results within the framework of the inter-university agreements,” Igor Karpenko stressed.
