Memoranda of Understanding
UPEI has academic partnerships around the world
In recent years, the University of Prince Edward Island has placed growing emphasis on internationalization of its university community and its activities. Internationalization has long been valued by universities as an important way to enrich and enhance the learning experience and the social and cultural environment. In addition to these intangible but vital benefits, it is increasingly recognized that internationalization can make major contributions to university sustainability and to the social and economic development of the broader community.
Memoranda of Understanding (MOU): this agreement is a memorandum of understanding which is the first step to a further agreement which may involve faculty or student exchange, or some other form of academic collaboration. At this level an exchange may be arranged between the partners; however, the terms of exchange have not yet been agreed upon.
