Yet another milestone in our path of success! International Balkan University has been awarded the status of Individual Associate Member of the European University Association (EUA), one of the most prominent university associations in the world. EUA is the representative organisation of Europe’s universities with more than 850 university members from 47 countries.
After being ranked as top university in Macedonia in the field of teaching and learning according to the Shanghai ranking for the academic year 2015/2016, the membership of IBU in this respectable organization is another significant achievement for the university, as it opens new ways for further internationalization and strengthening of educational and scientific cooperation with various universities from the European continent.
What is EUA?
The European University Association (EUA) is the representative organisation of universities and national rectors’ conferences in 47 European countries. EUA plays a crucial role in the Bologna Process and in influencing EU policies on higher education, research and innovation. Thanks to its interaction with a range of other European and international organisations EUA ensures that the independent voice of European universities is heard, wherever decisions are being taken that will impact on their activities.
EUA’s Vision
European universities aim to support, for the benefit of all, the continued development of the culture, society, technology and economy of Europe. Our vision of European universities of the future is that of a system of academic institutions with highly diversified profiles, providing a wide spectrum of graduate qualifications and facilitating the mobility of staff and students. This is only possible through promoting autonomous institutions, able to define their own strategy and build partnerships in their own best interests.
EUA fully upholds the values and principles enshrined in the Magna Charta Universitatum, signed in Bologna in 1988 by 388 rectors of universities worldwide.
