Since the signing of an academic exchange agreement in 2001, we have deepened our relationship with the University of Alberta in various ways, such as inviting researchers and faculty members from and sending ours to the university, and sending our students to participate in the English and Cultural Seminar at the University of Alberta.
During this meeting, not only did KU introduce the College of Cross-Cultural and Multidisciplinary Studies to the delegates, but also the two universities shared each other’s thoughts about ongoing and future exchange programs and agreed to further promote friendly relations.
On the same day, a presentation session was held to introduce the University of Alberta. Many of the students who are interested in the university attended this session.
