THE Saskatchewan Polytechnic in Canada and Central Philippine University in Iloilo signed a Memorandum of Understanding to explore international education and collaboration opportunities between the two institutions.

The MOU will open up prospects for future collaborations in applied research and international education and development, collaborative program delivery, study abroad and international teaching opportunities for students and faculty.

To further strengthen ties, Saskatchewan Polytechnic opened an office in Manila.

“We are thrilled to open an office in Central Manila to expand partnerships and enhance engagement with prospective students,” Saskatchewan Polytechnic president and CEO Dr. Larry Rosia said.

“We are also happy to celebrate the collaboration between Sask Polytech and Central Philippine University and the ways in which we will work together to achieve student success. This partnership supports our internationalization strategy by creating opportunities for student and faculty mobility, to study abroad, for applied research and joint curriculum development,” Rosia added.

CPU president Teodoro Robles welcomed the opportunity to partner with Saskatchewan Polytechnic.

“As our institutions work together to further our mutual internationalization agenda, CPU looks forward to opportunities that will allow our students and faculty to pursue research and to participate in programs especially in areas that the university and Sask Polytech see as integral to achieving sustainability. CPU also extends our warmest congratulations to Saskatchewan Polytechnic for its newly opened office in the Philippines,” Robles said.
