University strengthens links with Japan

University of Kent was delighted to welcome colleagues from Waseda University, Japan, on Wednesday 2 March 2016. Waseda is considered one of the most prestigious universities in Japan; it is one of the 13 universities in the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s “Global 30” Project, and consistently ranks amongst the top universities in Japan. Kent has a university-wide Memorandum of Understanding and Student Exchange Agreement with Waseda.

Professor Kazunori Araki, Associate Dean for International Affairs at Waseda, along with colleagues from the School of Political Science and Economics, met with Kent’s Professor Roger Vickerman, Dean for Europe, Dr. Anthony Manning, Dean for Internationalisation, and Hannah McNorton, Interim Director of International Partnerships. Discussions focused on expanding the existing relationship between Kent and Waseda through widening opportunities for student exchange, and facilitating staff exchange and research collaboration.
