The Grodno Medical University intends to open a branch in Sri Lanka, the university’s Rector Viktor Snezhitsky told BelTA.
A delegation of the Grodno State Medical University is now busy negotiating in Sri Lanka.
“We intend to open a branch of the university’s preparatory courses department. The idea will be implemented in 2018 if not in 2017,” Snezhitsky said.
The University plans to hire local teaching staff. Belarusian specialists will visit Sri Lanka for short-term business trips for control, performance review, and educational support.
If the plans are implemented, Sri Lanka will be the first country with a branch of the Grodno State Medical University.
“If the project is successfull, the practice will be expanded,” Viktor Snezhitsky said.
The Grodno State Medical University has trained foreign students for over 20 years. At present two thirds of the University’s foreign students are instructed in English during the six years of education.
