Trinity College Dublin has entered into a historic school-level student exchange agreement with Soochow University, China. Trinity’s Schools of Physics, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Immunology, and Soochow’s College of Nano Science and Technology signed the Student Exchange Agreement on Thursday 9th July on Trinity’s sixteenth-century campus.
This Student Exchange Agreement (SEA) signals a deepening of the partnership between Trinity and Soochow, following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding by Trinity’s Vice President of Global Relations during a visit to Soochow campus in December 2014.
Representatives of Soochow University, Prof. Shuit-Tong Lee, Dean of the College of Nano Science & Technology, and his colleague, Prof. Kang, signed the SEA while in Dublin to attend the CASE 2015 symposium, a joint conference between TCD, NUI Maynooth and RCSI.
This agreement provides for undergraduate research project exchanges of three months in duration as well as postgraduate exchanges between the institutions and is set to commence in September 2015.
The partnership is representative of Trinity’s commitment to developing high calibre international collaborations in Nano science research, as well as an exciting step towards further innovative collaborations between Trinity College Dublin and Soochow University
Dr Juliette Hussey, Vice President of Global Relations, noted that Trinity is “delighted to begin exchanging students with Soochow University. We very much look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with this University based on extensive research and teaching synergies and will be working on developing further collaborations in the coming months.”
