Tempus - the European Union's Program for the University Studies – is an external program of the EU that supports modernisation of higher education systems in the EU partner countries and neighbouring states. Today, this program is open for countries of Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Western Balkans, North Africa and the Middle East.
Ukraine joined TEMPUS in 1993. At that period the program focused on improvements of university governance and management, upgrading old curricula and developing new course and programs, professional development of teachers. Ukrainian higher education institutions actively participated in the TEMPUS program from the very beginning. Therefore, it is only reasonable that currently TEMPUS projects are being implemented in most regions of Ukraine. Over that period, Ukrainian universities have demonstrated their commitment to reforms and strong dedication to the development of higher education, introduction of innovative approaches and state-of-the-art technologies in the educational field.
During the I, II, III phases of the Tempus Program since 1993 to 2006 with active participation of the Ukrainian partners about 300 projects have been implemented.
The key information important for project teams have been implementing the Tempus Projects is placed at the website of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agence (EACEA).
