The main project objective is to develop and introduce new Master curriculum in land governance in accordance with the Bologna process (i.e. a two-year study program, ECTS including ECTS grading system) at two Macedonian and four Ukrainian universities. The project will establish the new study program through a new innovative (i.e. interdisciplinary) Master curriculum. Since two different countries are involved, two mainly similar but partly individual curricula are to be developed.

Take into account that in Ukraine the specialists in land governance are trained in technical and agrarian universities the national curriculum is also to be specialized in urban and rural land governance.

In Kyiv National University of Construction and Architecture (KNUCA) and Donetsk National Technical University (DNTU) will develop and introduce curriculum with urban profile. In Kharkiv National Agrarian University named after V.V. Dokuchaev (KNAU) and Lviv National Agricultural University (LNAU) will prepare new curriculum with rural profile.

Such differentiation (i.e. three various curricula for two countries) is caused by specifics of the countries as well as the priority courses at the partner universities.

Sts Cyril and Methodius University (SCMU) in Macedonia will introduce the new Master curriculum in land governance as a combination of urban and rural profiles at the faculty of Civil engineering. The Law faculty of Goce Delcev University (GDU) will participate in curriculum and course design through development of courses of the legal module.

In parallel with development of new Master curriculum and new courses, corresponding teaching materials are to be developed by teaching staff of all partner universities in a close cooperation with the EU teaching staff. These teaching materials consist of textbooks, manuals, tutorials, etc. A form of teaching materials varies from a course to a course, depending on available course literature.

Practical assistance in design of courses and teaching materials will also be provided by non-academic consortium members.

The new Master program will be in full operation from September 2012 at the partner universities.

The new IT academic environment will be introduced through establishment of five Centers of Land governance at partner universities. Each Centre will be equipped with modern PCs. The Centers will include extensive library with up-to-date literature.

By September 2012 the Centers will be supplied with academic databases containing courses information (i.e. lecture notes, exercises, projects etc).

The Centers are to be in operation by September 2011.

The link between higher education and practice will be strengthened though a range of Info-sessions to be held at all partner universities. The sessions are planned as meeting points between the professionals working in practice and the university teachers in order to find common grounds for future cooperation and knowledge exchange.
