The Federal service for supervision in education and science (Rosobrnadzor) has decided to grant a license to conduct educational activities of the European University (EU) located in St. Petersburg. The order is published on the Agency’s website.
The University was allowed to conduct educational activities for the nine master’s degree programs and four programs of postgraduate training. Classes EY permitted in the building on Gagarin street near the Small marble Palace (also known as the mansion Kushelev-Bezborodko), from which in winter the University evicted.
The last inspection of the service in the University was completed on 1 August, the experts have not revealed violations in the audited areas, EY reported on its website.
The problem at the European University began in 2016, when the check Rosobrnadzor found in the school 120 violations. The University announced the elimination of all violations, but the Department considered a number of violations corrected. As a result, in March 2017 Rosobrnadzor annulled the license of the University, court office EY lost.
Application for new license filed August 2, 2017. Rosobrnadzor after sending to the University a few requests for additional documents in September, the EU refused to grant a license. The main claim to EY at the time were: the lack of specialized furniture for classroom for some subjects and the lack of equipment for people with disabilities.
In parallel with the process of eviction of the University from a Small marble Palace. The city authorities terminated the lease of the mansion in January 2017, then EY lost the court building. Eventually, the mansion was transferred to the city authorities in January 2018.
At the time of the problems with Rosobrnadzor EY changed its status to a research Institute. The University was engaged in research and held public lectures.
