International projects

Turiba University is actively expanding its international cooperation, initiating, developing, and implementing various local, national, and international projects.

We believe that the development of the University is inconceivable without innovative initiatives, the creation of new teaching approaches and methods, and without international collaboration. To prepare high-quality new professionals, it is essential for our university to provide opportunities for learning in an international environment, meeting lecturers, and professionals from around the world. Therefore, we realize international projects in collaboration with universities and partners worldwide.

Through these projects, we have developed new and innovative educational resources and tools, published books, organized international conferences, exchange trips, study visits, summer schools, and other activities.

We have extensive experience in international project management and have been actively involved in coordinating projects such as Central Baltic Interreg, Erasmus Mundus, Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program, European Social fund, JUSTICE, NORDPLUS, and ERASMUS+ projects.

“I didn’t expect to learn so much in such a short period of time. We had various incredible lecturers who had an amazing passion to their area of expertise. Anyone could get inspired from their enthusiasm. For me, it gave extra boost to continue my own studies and some new perspectives. I also learned a lot about teamworking and leadership and got some confidence to use English in real life.
Another thing that really surprised me was the other students participating to the course. It was interesting meeting individuals from different cultures and backgrounds and study about what kind of security risks they have in their countries. I got so many amazing friends during this course that it was kind of shame that it only lasted for two weeks. I could have spent another two weeks with them”.
