Coventry University has signed an exciting new agreement with the Singapore campus of James Cook University (JCU) aimed at providing new opportunities for students in the field of psychology.
Spearheaded by Coventry University’s Singapore Hub, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the two universities is intended to develop psychology expertise and facilitate knowledge transfer.
It highlights the importance of higher education institutions in promoting international collaboration, as well as the value these institutions bring to social development in both Singapore and the UK.
The hope is that activities such as student and faculty exchange and study abroad arrangements will be prioritised and that students will be able to form new ties and connections with their peers from overseas.
Our collaboration with JCU is a great opportunity to enhance our joint expertise in the field of psychology, helping us to share best practices and benefit learners.
