Over the years, the Island Studies program at UPEI has established a host of useful links with like-minded universities around the world. In some cases, these have led to a formal memorandum of understanding (MOU) between UPEI and other universities. These MOUs, signed by the top officials of both institutions, establish the terms for general agreements that facilitate the exchange of faculty members and/or students from one university to another, ideally on an equitable, quid pro quo basis.
Thanks to these agreements, students who are registered (and paying fees) at UPEI can make arrangements to spend up to one semester at one of these overseas universities, without paying any additional fees.
The MAIS program has helped to broker MOUs with the following tertiary education institutions, all of which have some interest in pursuing the study of islands and island life:
For details about any of these institutions, please contact Jim Randall, MAIS Program Coordinator.
