Thu, Apr 20, 2017, 09:57 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 20, Colombo: The Grodno State Medical University in Belarus is considering opening a branch in Sri Lanka and a delegation of the Medical University is in Sri Lanka now for negotiations, according to the university's Rector Viktor Snezhitsky.

"We intend to open a branch of the university's preparatory courses department. The idea will be implemented in 2018 if not in 2017," the rector told Belarusian news agency BelTA.

"We are considering hiring local teaching staff. Specialists from Grodno will be sent to Sri Lanka for short-term business trips for the sake of control, performance review, and educational support," said the rector.

If the plans are implemented, Sri Lanka will be the first country with a branch of the Grodno State Medical University of its own.

"It is a normal practice for many universities. If the project produces the effect the university counts on, the practice will be expanded," noted Viktor Snezhitsky.

The Grodno State Medical University has trained foreign students for more than 20 years. Education services with English as the language of instruction have been available for over 15 years. At present two thirds of foreign students at the Grodno State Medical University are instructed in English during the entire six-year period of education.

"Our teachers are ready for it. We constantly recruit more young professionals, who speak foreign languages," said the rector. "The quality of training of foreign students at the Grodno State Medical University is highly rated, competition among foreign students exceeds two people per place," he added.
