The Odessa National I. I. Mechnikov University: mobility of students, postgraduates and teachers in terms of the Bologna process
(the model of cooperation with the Ca’ Foscari University, Venice, Italy)
The Odessa National I. I. Mechnikov University is the first classical university of independent Ukraine, which joined the Bologna process in 2003 by signing Magna Charta Universitatum in Bologna (Italy). From that time the main principles of the Bologna process have been set up at th university. Among them an important place is taken by the creation of common European educational space. One of the fundamental methods of its creation is the mobility of students and teachers. We may notice the big enough experience in this area of the I. I. Mechnikov ONU.
Every year about 200 teachers, postgraduates and students of the I. I. Mechnikov ONU visit the leading universities and scientific research institutes in the countries of West Europe for the purpose of studying, training and skill improvement. We have agreements about long-term scientific and educational cooperation with many of these scientific and educational establishments. Among such partners there is the Ca’ Foscari University (Venice, Italy).
The first contact with this university was in 1993 when there was collective research in the area of semiconductor physics. Then the archeologists of the Ca’ Foscari University initiated cooperation in 2007. As a result they entered into an agreement about cooperation between the universities with active involvement of students, postgraduates and teachers – philologists, archeologists, historians, economists and managers.
During two academic years (2007-2008 and 2008-2009) 14 visits with total duration of more than 2,5 academic years took place in terms of Exchange Program between the Ca’ Foscari University and the I. I. Mechnikov ONU. Within the academic year 2009-2010 this mobility program keeps on running. Now the teacher of the Russian language and literature of the Ca’ Foscari University, professor Donatella Possamay is in the I. I. Mechnikov ONU. She established connections with philology faculty, department of language training for foreigners, preparatory department for foreigners. Also the student of the Ca’ Foscari University, Elisa Maniero came to ONU to study modern Russian language and modern history throughout the academic year. We should mention that students-visitors in ONU get credits and marks which are fully accepted at the Ca’ Foscari University as well as at other European universities. On the part of ONU students and postgraduates are prepared for 3 months training at the Ca’ Foscari University. They study management, cultural anthropology and medieval history.
Both universities made arrangements about mutual compensation of expenses which are paid for education, living and stay of guests. This essentially increases social security for Ukrainian students. Besides, during 2007-2008, this mobility program was also financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy. That gave the representatives of ONU an opportunity to visit scientific and educational establishments in Florence and Genoa as well.
The experience gained in the Ca’ Foscari University can be actively introduced into the work of Center for History and Culture of Italy named after J. Garibaldi, which functions at ONU. It is also extremely useful for the historical and economy and law faculties, improves the operation of the foreign students’ deanery, as well as postgraduates and trainees. This fact increases the level of educational services of the I. I. Mechnikov ONU, making the diploma of this university very competitive on the Ukrainian and all-European labor market.
