A delegation from Sophia University Japan visited the International Unit of University of Colombo (IUUC) on the 6th of November at the office of the IUUC, College House. Associate professor (Ms.) Yuka Mizutani (senior lecturer) and Mr. Kohei Thakaji (office of Global Education and Collaboration) met Dr. Sampath Seneviratne (Director, International Unit), Dr. Ajith Balasooriya (senior lecturer, Dept. of International Relations), and Ms. Kalhari Perera (coordinator, International Unit) at the office of IUUC. During the discussions, both parties agreed on the renewal of the existing memorandum of understanding (MOU) and starting the student and faculty exchange between the two Universities. As well they agreed to check the feasibility of delivering lectures by connecting two classes from two Universities via teleconference technology which will enable them to give real-time experience and knowledge for the students. This will open up a number of opportunities for both academics and students of the University. The meeting was organized by the International Unit of University of Colombo.
