Moldova & Ukraine Partner for Chinese Student Influx

Five hundred Chinese students are set to arrive at the University of State of Moldova (USM) this coming September.

They will be enrolled in three economics programs, an IT program, and a program in education. All courses will be taught in English by professors from both USM and V.N. Karazin National University in Kharkiv, Ukraine. Classes and labs will be held on the USM campus.

In this vein, USM and V.N. Karazin National University have initiated procedures to facilitate the continuation of studies for students from China in five jointly offered programs.

During a meeting, the rectors of both universities, Igor Șarov and Tetiana Kaganovska, expressed their confidence in their experience to successfully execute this unique project. The Chinese Ambassador to Moldova, Yan Wenbin, was present at the discussions and enthusiastically endorsed the project. He highlighted his firm belief in USM's ability to deliver high-quality education to Chinese students and emphasised that success hinges on close collaboration between the two universities. The Chinese embassy pledged its full support to this endeavour.

It is noteworthy that Moldovan universities currently host approximately 5,000 international students, and the Ministry of Education aims to double this number in the coming years.

The largest concentration of international students is at the Moldovan State University of Medicine and Pharmacy (MSUMF), with roughly 1,300 students from India.
