How was it. Erasmus+ in Chech Republic. Maksym Yurchuk.

This was my first departure abroad, so emotions simply overwhelmed me. From the outset, I considered this trip as an opportunity to discover something new to me, because not every day you are given the opportunity to study at a foreign university.

While studying in Pardubice I received very useful knowledge in my specialty, started a huge number of friends from all over the world, improved my English proficiency and studied Czech language at the A1 level. Our educational process was accompanied by various events, trips, theme nights, and so on. I can say that we were not given a boredom.

I would also like to note that we received a fairly large scholarship, which allowed us to travel to Europe and to fully enjoy our stay there.

I am indebted to LETU for such a trip, and all other students who want to go through the program Erasmus +, I wish success. This opportunity is once in a lifetime, so use it!

ERASMUS adventure Anzhelika Ibrahimova

Any trip abroad is always interesting, but if it's a whole semester of studying with students of different nationalities in a foreign university – it is better to say that you have a chance to unforgettable adventure!
I received an incredible experience was studying in English, was communicating with students from different parts of our planet (from Brazil to China), was gaining new skills, have got the opportunity to travel to Europe, got acquainted with the Czech mentality and traditions and also found new hobbies (poker and pool).
I want to note the developed infrastructure of the institution, which made my stay in the Czech Republic comfortable and enjoyable.
And, of course, the most awesome were different trips to popular Czech cities and a lot of thematic parties and events (ESN Orientation Week, Welcome Party, National Evenings every Thursday, Secret Santa's Party, Helloween Party, Sports Day, Pub Tour etc.).
I am grateful to the Lviv University of Trade and Economics for this great opportunity.

Foreign Internship

The vice-rector of scientific work Professor Bohdan Semak, the dean of faculty of international economic relations and informational technologies faculty Associate Professor Juliia Poliakova, the head of the department of mathematics and quantitative methods Professor Anatolii Pilyavskyi along with the Professor of management department Tetiana Skrypko on 6-10 of  November 2017 took part in the program of academic mobility for teachers in the framework of the ERASMUS+ staff mobility for teaching and training program and cooperation agreement with the University of  Pardubice (Czech Republic). During the internship period the representatives of  the teaching staff  met with the leaders of the University of Pardubice, taught a series of lectures for students in English dedicated to actual problems of economy development and enterprises management. Also teachers took part in student’s scientific conference held in celebration of the “week of economy theory and practice” and studied the experience of conducting career guidance activities in the University of  Pardubice.

On November 4th 2017 the head of the department of computer science, associate professor A. Kostenko and students of specialty “computer science and information technologies” visited an international conference “Al Big Data” with thematic sections such as “Data Science”, “Data Engineering”, “Workshop” where students had an opportunity to see the design of large databases, development of artificial intelligence and possibilities of their practical use.


The warm September has brought to the students of the Faculty of International Economic Relations not only the beginning of a new studying year, seeing back after the summer friends, groupmates, colleagues and teachers, but also an interesting event. Class of 2007 graduate, Ivan Hulka, who had completed the International Economic Relations study programme, has come to visit us. The IER department staff remembers him as a merry, carefree and curious student, yet instead we are meeting a respectable, impressive, and dignified but no less cheerful Marketing Director of the Canadian company Vestra Inet Internet Solutions. Ivan currently resides in Canada, so his visit has turned out to be an unexpectedly great occasion to introduce our students to the opportunities and perspectives that training at our Faculty reveals.

The students got motivated to responsibly master all required subjects, as the diploma issued by our University is the starting point, which leads to the heights of career success, even abroad. Of course, those who set themselves the goal of applying their professional skills in other countries should pay a great attention to foreign languages. When taking courses, it is necessary to be always looking for their applied value in respective professional activity. To sum up, Ivan emphasised that, in order to succeed, you need not only to get a degree, but also to constantly show perseverance, a desire for self-development and improvement.


The Faculty of International Economic Relations and Information Technologies is brand-new and modern, while our students are creative young people, with a great sense of humour, awesome singers , terrific video-presentations makers, and they are just the most beautiful, the most talented and the most amazing!

We are proud of the bright performance of our faculty team “WHAT'S UP?” in the “STUDENT SUMMER” contest in Lviv University of Trade and Economics.


The spectacular Lviv June took on the City of Lviv has welcomed third-year student of "International Economic Relations" Nadiia Havryliak with hot embrace of June from Poland. There, Nadiia had semester of studying in the framework of the ERASMUS + program and the agreement with Lodz University (Republic of Poland). This is not the first ftrip abroad for young international student, as she has already had to represent LUTE in Bulgaria and Rwanda.


Marta Martin, a third-year student of "International Economic Relations" department was part of a semester of studying in Wroclaw, as participant of ERASMUS + program, in the framework of agreement on cooperation with the Wroclaw University of Economics (Republic of Poland).

Computer Science students participated in the ERASMUS+ programme in the Czech Republic

What is the ERASMUS+ programme? It is an amazing opportunity and invaluable experience. The news of having the honour to represent our University in the Czech Republic made our joy impossible to contain. Beyond doubt, there was a hard time of preparing all necessary documents; however we quickly overcame it all, full of enthusiasm.

Until the last, it was difficult to believe that we are no longer in the mother Ukraine but far away from its borders, standing at the heart of Europe with a standard set of a student, a pen and a notebook in our hands.
It was easy to get used to the European educational system, and we vigorously hit the Czech grindstone as willing students (by the way, we can state that our grindstone of knowledge is sweeter, probably because it is closer to our hearts).

All the difficulties that arose were resolved fairly quickly. A pleasant bonus of our studies at the University of Pardubice was a large scholarship, which gave us the possibility to see almost the whole of Europe.

We left Ukraine for 5 long months, so we felt homesick and missed our native land and our beloved ones a lot. When abroad you think over your attitude to everything: to the studies, people, policies and even those "pieces of paper" called money.

We are sincerely grateful to Lviv University of Trade and Economics for this invaluable experience and wish good luck to all students who will get the chance to participate in this, no exaggeration, unique programme.
