RAS AL-KHAIMAH, July 22, 2018

The American University of Ras Al Khaimah (Aurak) and the Al-Farabi Kazakh National University (KazNU) of the Republic of Kazakhstan have signed an agreement to exchange students, faculty, and research.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by Aurak president Professor Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim, and the KazNU rector, Professor Galimkair Mutanov.

The MoU aims to promote educational and scientific cooperation, which would be facilitated through the exchange of students and faculty, as well as collaboration in research. The newly-signed agreement also provides a basis for cultural exchange between the UAE and the Republic of Kazakhstan, as well as the possibility for even closer academic ties between the two institutions, through dual degree programmes.

Dr Lee Waller, Aurak dean of Student Success and Enrolment Management, said: “The celebrated signing between Al-Farabi Kazakh National University and American University of Ras Al Khaimah will increase collaboration between these two highly respected international universities and open the door of opportunity for the peoples of both nations.”

Both Aurak and Al-Farabi Kazakh National University will experience student success fostered from the collaborations of this partnership.

Prof Hassan said: "In Al-Farabi Kazakh National University we have an esteemed collegiate cohort which will bolster the educational experience for our students with ample opportunities to advance them both in their studies and in making international connections.”

At present Aurak has a range of international partners across Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America, opening a wide spectrum of possibilities to students including exchange and study abroad programmes for up to one year, as well as shorter summer sessions. – TradeArabia News Service
