HAU INKS NEW AGREEMENTS WITH FOREIGN UNIVERSITIES

Holy Angel University recently signed an international academic agreement with two other foreign universities, namely, Kansai University (KU) of Osaka, Japan and Huachiew Chalermprakiet University (HCU) of Thailand.


Through an exchange of signatures on the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Acting University President Engr. Geromin T. Nepomuceno, Jr. and KU President Dr. Harushige Kusumi formalized the academic ties between HAU and KU on December 9, 2014.


KU is a 129-year old institution founded as Kansai Law School in November 1886 and was granted the title ‘Kansai University in 1905. It has 13 faculties, 12 graduate schools, three professional graduate schools. Its student body of about 30,000 is comprised of undergraduate, graduate and international students studying in four campuses in Osaka.


Even before the formalization of ties, KU and HAU have been conducting student collaborative and interaction programs since 2012.


The MOU between HAU and HCU, on the other hand, was concluded by Engr. Nepomuceno, Jr. and HCU President Dr. Prachak Poomvises, also through an exchange of signatures. The agreement, which commenced on January 14, 2015, was the culmination of discussions with HCU administrators during their visit to the University last year.


HCU is the largest Chinese university and one of the top private universities in Thailand. It was founded in 1941 as a nursing and midwifery school by PohTeck Tung Foundation, itself the biggest Chinese charitable institution in that country which began in 1910.


The signing of these two agreements brings to four the number of international academic cooperation established by the University this school year, coming as they did on the heels of the formalization of relationships with Kkottongnae University of Korea and the University of Western Sydney in July 2014 and August2014, respectively.


The linkage between the University and its new foreign higher education institution-partners aims to foster mutual cooperation in teaching, curriculum development, training, and research.
