Aurak in coop deal with Korea's Incheon University

RAS AL KHAIMAH, September 30, 2017

The American University of Ras Al Khaimah (Aurak) said it has signed an agreement with Incheon National University, a key institution based in Incheon, South Korea, to promote educational and scientific co-operation.

Incheon is Aurak’s fourth Asian partner, alongside Konkuk University in Seoul, as well as universities in Hong Kong and Malaysia.

The MoU would be facilitated through the exchange of students and faculty, as well as collaboration in research.

Lauding the initiative, Prof Dong-Sung Cho, the president of Incheon National University, said: “I look forward to a successful partnership with AURAK, especially in terms of what we can achieve through collaborative research in the future.”

The newly-signed agreement also provides a basis for cultural exchange between the UAE and South Korea, as well as the possibility for even closer academic ties between the two institutions, through dual degree programs, he stated.

Aurak's president Prof Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim said: “In Incheon National University we have yet another world-class academic partner, which provides our faculty and students with even more opportunities. It represents a wonderful chance to widen our cultural horizons, and we also hope to welcome our first Korean exchange students to Ras Al Khaimah."

The RAK institution already has significant ties with South Korea; in February 2016, Konkuk University, whose main campus is based in Seoul, became the university’s first Korean partner, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
