In this context, the Rector of South East European University, Acad. Prof. Dr. Abdylmenaf Bexheti, together with the Director of the Max van der Stoel Institute (MVDSI), Prof. Dr. Veli Kreci and Dr. Menann Selimi, senior researcher, on Wednesday and Thursday (May 24 and 25), were on a cooperation visit at the University of Birmingham.
The purpose of the visit is to deepen cooperation in the field of environment (such as air pollution in Tetovo) and to raise research and academic capacities in this field.
During the visit, the SEEU delegation held meetings with important representatives of the University of Birmingham, such as: the Director of the Office for International Cooperation, Dr. Allan McKinley, with the director of Postdoctoral Research in the Department of Political Science and International Studies, Prof. Peter Kerr, with the Director of the Institute for Global Innovation, Prof. Jonathan Radcliffe and other representatives of the University of Birmingham.
SEEU and the University of Birmingham are considering the possibilities of developing cooperation in other areas as well, such as the creation of doctoral studies and the creation of joint research groups in this interdisciplinary and all-deficit field not only in the country, but also in the region.
During the visit, the SEEU delegation was joined by master's student Lejla Ademi, who is sent by SEEU for intensive study with a one-year program and student scholarship of the University of Birmingham, allocated exclusively to the South East European University.
The University of Birmingham is ranked in the TOP 5 best universities in Great Britain.
