UNIVERSITI Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) in Kota Samarahan plans to collaborate with China’s Qinghai Normal University (QNU) on student and staff exchange programmes and joint research projects.

Unimas vice-chancellor Prof Dr Khairuddin Ab Hamid and QNU president Dong Jiaping signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to formalise the partnership between the two universities at the Unimas campus yesterday.

The signing was witnessed by Unimas board of directors chairman Datuk Dr Hatta Solhi and Consul-General of China in Kuching Xie Fugeng.

Dr Khairuddin said the MoU was the first to be signed by Unimas with a university from China and would establish a framework for collaboration over a five-year period for both universities to promote academic and research interaction.

“The intention is to internationalise our programmes and research activities. Our plan is to bring in students from QNU to do part of their studies here.

“The initial plan is to bring in 50 students from QNU. The first intake of students is likely to be in the 2011/2012 academic year,” he told reporters after the signing ceremony.

Dr Khairuddin said that Unimas and QNU would also look into conducting research projects in areas of common interest such as bridging the digital divide, environmental issues and emerging diseases.

“We will pick two to three projects initially to collaborate on,” he said.

Other areas of cooperation under the MoU include Unimas assistance to QNU to enhance its English language programme, staff exchange between both universities as well as social and cultural activities.

Meanwhile, Dong said that both universities shared many similarities which provided a good foundation for cooperation.

“We hope the cooperation will promote a good relationship between our two universities and help broaden our students’ horizon. We look forward to a successful cooperation,” he said.

QNU is a leading university in Qinghai province and is situated near the provincial capital Xining.
