School welcomes representatives from Central College University, Iowa
Senior management representatives from Central College University, Iowa, USA, visited the School of Social Sciences on Monday 7th December as part of a four-day visit to Bangor.
Central College is a long-standing partner of Bangor University, and a number of its students have undertaken international experience at Bangor as part of their degrees, most notably in the School of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences.
The focus of this latest visit was to explore ways of developing a strong partnership between Central College and the School of Social Sciences, thereby expanding the School’s network of international partners.
“Such a partnership will benefit students of both universities with enhanced opportunities for learning and collaboration”, said Mr Hefin Gwilym, Lecturer in Social Policy and International Co-ordinator for the School of Social Sciences. “We hope this will translate into student and teaching exchanges in the near future”.
