Robert Gordon University (RGU) is building on its overseas links as it forms a strategic partnership with a university in China.

RGU has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Wuhan Polytechnic University under which they will collaborate on higher education programmes.

The agreement will see the two universities explore the collaborative development of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral (PhD) programmes as well as research projects.

The MoU will also explore articulation agreements between RGU and Wuhan Polytechnic University where students can split their study between the two institutions for specific undergraduate programmes such as accounting and finance, media, tourism, business management, engineering and architecture.

RGU’s Principal, Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski, said: “I am delighted that RGU will be collaborating on education programmes with the Wuhan Polytechnic University, which is an influential institution with an international outlook.

“International relations are very important for universities and we look forward to building a strong strategic link with Wuhan Polytechnic University which will benefit both universities academically and in our respective research programmes as well as our student experience offerings.”

The MoU was signed when a senior delegation from Wuhan Polytechnic University visited RGU where they met with key staff from each of RGU’s faculties to discuss collaborative opportunities and toured the campus.
