Visit of a Delegation from the University of Worcester

p01A delegation from the University of Worcester in the United Kingdom, which consisted of Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Heather Forland, Head of the International Relations Office Catherine Hyde, and International Students Coordinator Chris Taylor, visited Akdeniz University on December 5th 2014.

As part of the visit, a forum entitled “Workshop of Scientific Collaboration” was held in the Meeting Room of the International Relations Office, and was attended by the relevant units of Akdeniz University. During the workshop, a decision was reached to establish a Bilateral Agreement as part of the bilateral collaboration taking place under the terms of the Erasmus programme. According to the agreement, mobility activities would start in 2015 with exchanges involving students, and members of the academic and administrative staffs. This cooperation project would be directed towards Research and Development Studies as part of the scientific collaboration agreement signed between Akdeniz University and the University of Worcester.

Prof. Dr. Burhan Ozkan, Advisor to the Rector and Head of the International Relations Office, said in the context of the visit that Akdeniz University already enjoyed collaboration with a large number of universities from different regions of the world, and that cooperation with institutions in the United Kingdom was an important stepping-stone in the internationalization process at Akdeniz University. He added that there was great enthusiasm for the collaborative agreement which had been reached, especially since it would lead to mutually beneficial exchange visits with universities in the United Kingdom.
