The International Relations Department of the Belarusian State Academy of Arts is a centre for information, communication and coordination on international relations and partnerships with higher education institutions as well as institutions in the spheres of science, culture and art of different countries.
The Department strives to develop, maintain and coordinate the international activity of our undergraduates, master’s degree students, postgraduates and staff, based on the desire to enhance the academic and professional knowledge and skills. The staff of the Department participate in the organization and work of national and international events, conferences and projects.
The Department also offers the advice and support international undergraduates, master’s degree students and postgraduates need while living and studying in Belarus, ensuring they gain the most from their time at BSAA.
The Department has made a significant contribution to the development of cross-cultural motivation, to the formation of transcultural social and professional competences, to the accumulation of cultural experience and to the establishment of a dialogue of cultures, to the creation of a positive international image of the Belarusian State Academy of Arts.
The location of the Academy in the heart of Europe allows it to maintain and actively develop partnerships both in the countries of the European Union and the countries of the CIS, Turkey and China. The exchange of exhibitions, scientific publications, internships for students and staff, lectures and master classes, and other international activities facilitates the growth of mobility and the integration of different cultures.
