Forty university students have obtained the double Slovak-French diploma thanks to the Slovak-French University Institute which unites six schools in both countries.
The institute was established in 2011 under the auspices of the French Embassy to Slovakia and the Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica. Its aim is to allow the students of both countries to study both in France and Slovakia. The students obtain the double diploma at the end of their studies, the TA3 news channel reported in December 2016.
“It is very important to increase the attractiveness of France in the eyes of Slovak students and vice versa,” said French Ambassador to Slovakia Christophe Leonzi, as quoted by TA3. “This mutual exchange helps develop the relations of both countries.”
It is necessary to build cooperation between the universities and potential employers, the ambassador added.
The double bachelor or master’s diploma, can be obtained by students of universities in Bratislava, Nitra, Banská Bystrica and Košice who study management, and economic and political sciences, TA3 reported.
