At the same time, the university strives to further philanthropic and socially responsible thinking with regard to the educational needs of the population. UTDT is an academically, financially and administratively independent institution. The admissions policy for students, faculty and administrative staff is based on individual merit. In particular, faculty members are assessed by international standards and selected on account of their academic achievements and teaching experience. International cooperation is essential to the fulfillment of the UTDT’s objectives. As the university is committed to the advancement of campus research in a country where higher education has evidenced a visible deterioration, the UTDT believes strongly in the development of enduring ties with outstanding universities throughout the world.
