<5th> Aug. 1, 2012; International Partner Universities and Institutions with MOUs



<Re: International Partner Universities and Institutions with MOUs>


We, the Research Support Section, researched regarding UOEH International Partners.

There are 24 Universities and Institutions affiliated with UOEH with MOUs; the first one is with Kosin Medical College, Korea in 1984 and the latest is with the Catholic University of Korea last fall, in 2011.


We have the names of the representative examples on the wall, and we also displayed the original MOUs in the cabinet in the International Center.

Please feel free to ask us if you wish to have a look.
