The aim of the paper is to draw attention to the inevitable transformation of the education system in ethnology. In particular, our Department/Faculty/University have already started necessary structural and organisational changes in accordance with the opening of the European space of higher education. The transformation of the education system does not include only evaluation of students' work by credits, but involves also transformation of a student-teacher relationship to the rather colleague-like form. Redefining of degrees should contribute to better applicability of the study in students' future careers. We believe that this would lead also to higher popularity of ethnology, which has recently, and lets' hope temporarily, experienced decreasing attention, perhaps because of an insufficient dissemination of the discipline's results in the broader discourse. At the same time we would like to provide our students with international academic experience. Our ideas about the above mentioned issues are rather elaborated and we are dedicated to bring them into reality.
