THE University of Huddersfield has forged a pioneering partnership with one of the most go-ahead universities in Bangladesh. 

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed with Green University of Bangladesh, based in the capital city of Dhaka.   

Scheduled to last for five years, the agreement will result in student exchanges, visits by academic staff and shared research in fields such as social sciences, law, computing, electronic and electrical engineering and English, which are among the principal strengths at Green University, which was founded in 2003.

The partnership will also provide excellent progression opportunities for Green University students to further their studies at Huddersfield. 

The MoU was signed during a ceremony at the Bangladeshi university.  Representing the University of Huddersfield were the Head of the International Office, Sue Staples – who had made an earlier visit to Bangladesh to lay foundations for the agreement – and Huddersfield’s International Partnerships Manager Tony Wong.

“We were delighted that the formal MoU was signed to begin what should be an excellent collaboration,” he added.
