UCT signs MoU with Beijing Normal University

03 February 2015

UCT's ongoing drive to boost co-operation with international peers received a boost with the signing a memorandum of understanding with Beijing Normal University (BNU) on 22 January 2015.

The non-binding MoU encourages staff from both universities to explore collaboration opportunities in teaching and research, and reflects UCT and BNU's broader agendas to strengthen partnerships between BRICS universities.

The institutions agreed to mutually pursue activities in a number of broad areas, including visits and research and study exchange programmes for graduate and undergraduate students; staff visits and exchanges related to teaching, research and discussions; information sharing (eg exchange of library materials and research publications); and joint research activities in fields of mutual interest.
