It’s enough to mention even several facts:
- According to the research of the UNESCO International Institute of Education Management, Grigol Robakidze University is among the top five higher educational institutions of Georgia in terms of the employment of students.
- It is significant that not only graduates, but also students easily meet the demands of the labour market. If we follow the statistics, we’ll see that over 30 % of upper level (year) students are already employed. Moreover, in the inner contest of companies they show better results than other candidates. To prove this idea, we’d like to mention III level student of Business Organization and Management programme Bakar Verulashvili who won I rating place in the contest held by the Bank of Georgia where 150 other candidates participated. He immediately started to work there. And this is not the only case.
- Georgian Government discussed the issue about the results of the certifying exams passed by medical students. The meeting confirmed that the graduates of the Faculty of Medicine of Grigol Robakidze University won the first rating place according to the level of knowledge and the number of received state certificates. It’s also noteworthy that the first 98 and 99 points were fixed among the graduates of our University.
What is the base for achieving such results?
a) The newest teaching technologies – case methods, master classes, modeling methods, the system of working on projects, discussion methods, interactive and presentation methods of delivering lectures, etc.
b) High-qualified professors. The great majority of them are well-aware of modern teaching methods what is proved by certificates issued by local and international centres of professional development.
