After opening an avenue for students to study in China, QIU has forged yet another pathway for its students to experience international education.
And this time, it’s a pathway to experience learning in another global economic powerhouse—India.
QIU cemented the deal by inking a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with India’s Sri Ramakrishna College of Arts and Science (SRCAS) here recently.
This is just the latest international study opportunity offered by QIU after the dual degree-partnership with China’s Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT)—where students spend their first two years in QIU, before continuing the final two years at BIT.
Our new partner is an autonomous arts and science institution, offering an array of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in fields like management, commerce, science and the humanities—in addition to language and research programmes. Sounds like we’ve got a lot in common!
Under the new deal, QIU and SRCAS agreed to collaborate on:
- Student and faculty academic exchange, including cross-cultural studies and international trade practice
- Joint research programmes, seminars, conferences and workshops
- Programme design
- Promoting the internationalisation of education.
SRCAS also have extensive experience in student exchange, with hundreds of students experiencing the excitement of exchange programmes over the past three years.
The MoU was signed by QIU Vice-Chancellor Professor Zita Mohd Fahmi and SRCAS Principal and Secretary Dr B.L. Shivakumar.
Present to witness the signing were QIU Faculty of Business and Management Dean Professor Dr Abdul Raheem Mohamad Yusof and SRCAS Associate Professor and Head of the Department of Commerce (Accounting and Finance) Dr G.Agila.
“This is an excellent opportunity for us to continue pursuing international engagement opportunities. At QIU, we want our students to have a global outlook and become more acclimatised to dealing with issues around the world. Today’s MoU is very significant and we look forward to a successful long term relationship with SRCAS,” said Prof Zita.
“We are very happy with the MoU. In coming years, both our students can visit our respective campuses, learn, and share our views and thoughts so we can grow together. This is a beginning of an exciting win-win situation for both institutions, and crucially for our students,” said Dr Shivakumar.
Congratulations to both parties, and we look forward to creating more mega educational opportunities with SRCAS!
