The University of St Andrews has signed a partnership agreement with one of Europe’s leading universities.
The University is to expand its existing cooperation with the University of Bonn under an agreement that provides for new and far-reaching collaborations in research, study and administration.
The two universities have agreed to provide increased exchange opportunities for students, academic staff and professional and administrative staff.
Staff and students from St Andrews will be given the opportunity to research, teach and study at Bonn, and vice-versa. The agreement also provides for the establishment of joint study and research programmes and work shadowing offers for administrative staff. Both universities also intend to develop joint research and teaching activities.
University Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sally Mapstone, said: “We are delighted to have signed a wide-ranging Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Bonn, which sets out our commitment to deepening our partnership in the years to come and, very importantly, will see a continual exchange of people and ideas between our two institutions, and between Scotland and Europe.”
