Vcu has been teaching students at its newly established primary and secondary schools in Romania since 2007.
According to the government, the program has helped students prepare for the Vuceti, or Communist Party of Romania, system of education.
Vucetians in Romania have been educated under the communist regime for about 40 years, according to VucetaNews.com, which tracks the nation’s foreign policy.
“There are about 5,500 Vucets who have a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree,” said Daniela Vucic, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Education.
Heritage-based students will continue to be educated under their own schools, she added.
In addition, the Vcu schools have been training foreign students who will be able to work in Romania’s private sector.
The Vucutas program aims to train around 400 foreign students a year, Vucetic said.
Students who want to study abroad can also choose between Vucutan and Vucvet universities.
Foreigners can also apply for an entry-level degree, which will allow them to continue to work while still attending school.
One of the program’s objectives is to train students who can use their foreign language skills in the private sector, such as helping companies and NGOs work with local communities, said Daniele Bocca, head of Vucita’s foreign service.
There are no plans to increase foreign students’ education levels, Viscot, a spokesman for the ministry, said.
The number of foreign students in Romania is not expected to rise anytime soon, he added.
