International cooperation in university field
Since 2016, the FCV has continued with the International Cooperation in University Field. The Cooperation Programme in Ukraine has been kept for 8 years, with a close collaboration with the Donetsk Institute of Tourism Business.
The war conflict existing in the city has caused the closure of this institute and the diaspora of part of its teaching staff, which caused the ending of the collaboration with Donetsk and also the Improvement in Hotel Field course.
However and thanks to keeping in touch with Donetsk Institute’s teachers, a new collaboration with Saint Petersburg University has been initiated. who would rather focus the collaboration on making easier its language learning and in intercultural aspects among students.
Two courses have been organised in this framework: Spanish Language and Intercultural Communication Improvement and a summer course all year long. During 2016, 2 students have taken part in the summer course and 8 in the all year long course.
This activity is organised in the framework of University Mediterranean Campus—linked to Polytechnic University of Catalonia—, Vilanova i la Geltrú Town Council, and European Mediterranean Institute, which is managed by the FCV.
