Outline of the Agreements
International Exchange Agreements
One of the educational aims of this university is “Equipping students with the abilities to communicate internationally and interculturally, and to function with an international viewpoint.” To achieve this aim, the university has completed exchange agreements with two overseas universities.
In 2001, an agreement was signed between MCN and Mahidol University, Thailand, which established a framework for the mutual exchange of students for short-term study trips. This program began operating in the same academic year, and every year since then the Nursing Faculty of Mahidol University and MCN have been mutually sending a number of students.
In 2015, MCN signed an agreement with the University of Glasgow, Scotland, inaugurating a program of student exchange, which is scheduled to begin in 2016.
