It is given concrete expression to the fact, that such approaches in Education connected with the factores of the world globalization and the international migration intensification. The specific features of these approaches are based on the ideas of culture pluralism (culture conformity, culture equality, culture tolerance, culture dialogues). It is demonstrated, that transcultural Education is a new humanist oriented paradigm which is based on the recognition of each Person importance as a different identical and cultural bearer which is necessary to admit, to respect and to use it as the mean of inner enrichment with the help of levelling the negative prejudice and stereotypes, social perception (such as category of race, ethno, religion, gender, language, labour, social position). Transcultural Education gives a great opportunity for the future Teacher to feel herself/himself multicultural person and be ready to develop her/his potential as an organizer of modern pupils’ polycultural upbringing in the condition of the polyethnic Danube region.
