UC Signs MOU with Dongseo University

On December 16, 2010, the University of Cambodia (UC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Dongseo University to promote academic cooperation and intercultural understanding. Dongseo University is UC’s third MOU with a university in the Republic of Korea and, along with standard course offerings, its three priority areas of educational focus are IT, design, and digital content.

H.E. Dr. Kao Kim Hourn, President of UC and Adviser to Samdech Techo Prime Minister, signed the agreement alongside Dr. Jekuk Chang, Executive Vice President of Dongseo University. Both expressed their sincere appreciation for the universities being able to work together for the benefit of students and faculty.

The signed MOU will promote knowledge sharing through faculty and student exchange programs, exchange of academic materials, activities that facilitate joint research efforts, and participation in seminars and academic meetings.

After hearing Dr. Chang’s briefing on Dongseo, Dr. Kao affirmed his belief that media communications will be one of the areas where UC and Dongseo can cooperate with one another to help with each university’s expansion efforts. He also highlighted that Cambodia and the Republic of Korea have a strong relationship and that many Korean investors and tourists come to invest in and visit Cambodia, so building this academic partnership aligns with the bilateral cooperation efforts.

UC is very excited about building this new partnership with a reputable overseas university. These opportunities will help to develop its faculty and students’ capacity to conduct leading research, learn about Korean culture and life, and benefit from a richer and more diverse learning experience at UC.

The University will continue to seek new partnerships with other leading universities in order to further its mission of academic excellence, research, public service, cultural understanding, and building international linkages and partnerships.
