Grenada's St George’s University Signs MOU with S. Korea's Uiduk University
Grenada, West Indies (June 13, 2017) — St. George’s University in Grenada has signed an agreement with Uiduk University in South Korea, creating an avenue for students and academic staff to study and work together via reciprocal exchange programs.

The broad ranging agreement between the two institutions confers a number of benefits to both, including:

— The exchange of professors, graduate students, researchers, administrative staff members and academic information

— The exchange of undergraduate students for both curricular and extra-curricular activities

— The organisation of joint research programs, including for publication in academic and professional journals

— The organisation of joint academic conferences, workshops and meetings

These provisions make way for St. George’s and Uiduk to develop comprehensive exchange and cooperation programs, providing opportunities for international study for students and faculty at both universities.

“This agreement strengthens our global network of higher education institutions and furthers our mission to be a truly international University,” said Dr. G. Richard Olds, President of St. George’s University. “We look forward to welcoming students and faculty from Uiduk University to our campus.”

Uk Heon Hong, Ph.D, President of UIDUK University, said “I am pleased to have overseen the beginning of a new relationship between Uiduk and St. George’s University, and hope that this continues for many years to come. This agreement allows for broad cooperation in a number of areas, which will serve to enrich the academic experience for our students and staff”.

St. George’s University is a centre of international education, drawing students and faculty from over 140 countries to the island of Grenada, West Indies. St. George’s is affiliated with educational institutions worldwide, including in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Ireland.

The University has contributed over 17,000 physicians, veterinarians, scientists, and public health and business professionals who are practicing across the world. The University programs are accredited and approved by many governing authorities.

Uiduk University is a private institution located in Gyeongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea. It is situated midway between Pohang and Gyeongju near the village of Gangdong-myeon. It has a wide range of departments offering graduate programs leading to either an MA or a PhD, including public administration, physical therapy, social welfare, health and nursing.

The university has opened up courses for foreign students to learn Korean, and subsequently enrol on regular courses. The existing foreign student programme includes students from China, Vietnam, Taiwan and Japan.
