Ex­change pro­gramme for univer­sity stu­dents, staff

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

NILAI: Univer­siti Sains Is­lam Malaysia (Usim) and Ja­pan’s Pre­fec­tural Univer­sity of Hiroshima (PUH) yes­ter­day signed a me­moran­dum of agree­ment to of­fer learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to their stu­dents and staff.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion in­volves a “Sum­mer Pro­gramme” to gain in­sight into the stu­dent’s ap­proach and at­ti­tudes to­wards the built en­vi­ron­ment, and learn­ing about cul­tures of both coun­tries.

Usim was rep­re­sented at the event by its vice-chan­cel­lor Prof Datuk Dr Musa Ah­mad and PUH by its pres­i­dent Dr Kenichi Naka­mura.

Musa said the co­op­er­a­tion is in line with the Malaysian Ed­u­ca­tion Blueprint (Higher Ed­u­ca­tion) 20152025.

“The co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Usim and PUH started when Usim sent its del­e­gates to PUH be­tween Feb 14 and 22, in­volv­ing two stu­dents from Usim’s fac­ulty of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy, and two stu­dents from the fac­ulty of Ma­jor Lan­guages Stud­ies,” he added.

He said ear­lier this month, PUH had sent four un­der­grad­u­ate stu­dents and a staff for the Sum­mer Pro­gramme at Usim.

“Among ac­tiv­i­ties car­ried out dur­ing the pro­gramme were mod­ules linked to the Malaysian cul­ture at a homes­tay, and in­tro­duc­tion of par­tic­i­pants to rub­ber tap­ping, mak­ing tra­di­tional cook­ies and ex­po­sure to tra­di­tional games dur­ing the vil­lage tour ses­sion.”

Be­sides PUH, Musa said the univer­sity had also es­tab­lished col­lab­o­ra­tion with a few other ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions in Ja­pan, such as Teikyo Univer­sity of Ja­pan and Ja­pan Ad­vances In­sti­tute Of Tech­nol­ogy. – Ber­nama
