The Joint Tempus Project “PhD in Food Science and Technology & Creating Capacities for PhD Reform at the University of Prishtina - PhD@UP” aims at supporting curricular reform and capacity building at the University of Prishtina (UP) with support of the Ministry of Education, the Kosovo Accreditation Agency and Student Unions.

Project Highlights

  • This project focuses on reforming the PhD system at the UP in accordance with the Bologna process and the European standards.
  • It will furthermore enable development and implementation of an interdisciplinary PhD Program in Food Science and Technology. This PhD program involves the Faculties of (1) Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences, (2) Mathematics and Natural Sciences and (3) Medicine. The intention is to create a good practice model at the UP, which demonstrates a PhD model based on European standards in curriculum, research, internationalisation and quality assurance. The program will be accredited by the Kosovo Accreditation Agency and become an integral part of the UP.

These actions present a joint effort to improve the offer at the PhD level at the UP and are one further step towards the integration of Kosovo into the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).
