Petro Yasniy, Tetiana Vitenko, Iryna Kramar


In recognising the strategic position of the higher education sector in terms of thr international competitiveness in the globalised economy, many countries have begun to internationalise their educational systems. This paper aims to present main features and aspects of Ternopil Ivan Puluj National Technical University (TNTU), Ukraine practices that have been used to strengthen its international activity. Prospects of the university international activity are stated. The research methodology is analyzing primary data presented by the International office of TNTU, literature review and collecting data from the web sites set up by the statistical organizations of Ukraine. University’s international activities can be broadly categorized as academic exchange, research collaboration and university‐community-industry engagement. The paper reviews those which are mostly used by TNTU. The results show that it is needed for TNTU to focus on research and university‐community-industry collaboration in its international strategies to better position itself at the educational market. Internal competition, demographic decrease, change in age structure and consumer behaviour and preferences are those trends that create new challenges. This is an original piece of analytical work on the main forms of university internationalization, case of TNTU.
