Flying University opens admission for the 2016-2017 academic year!

Starting from September 12, 2016 the University has started accepting applications for general courses and seminars in the Flying University.

The students will also have a chance to join Schools of Masters of Game that were initiated in January 2016.

This academic year, the Flying University’s focus is individuality, self-determination, identity, and constructing free time. As always, we don’t give "correct answers", but offer tools, methods and means of communication instead.

This year, education in the Flying University will again happen at two levels.

At the first level, students can enroll for general courses.

They provide for the development of various approaches in thinking, humanitarian and intellectual practices; introduce current and unique areas of modern Belarusian thinking, and help search for a Teacher.

Introduction to Postcolonial Theory - Ihar Babkou;

The second level of education is based on Schools of Masters of Games.

A School of History of Ideas, led by Ihar Babkou;

Methodological School led by Uladzimir Matskevich, Tatsiana Vadalazhskaja;

School of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania led by Aleh Dziarnovich;
