Previously in May, UEF and HUFS had their first working session, marking the partnership between the two universities. During this, an interchange of overviews of both universities and the discussion of study-abroad and student-exchange programs were established in advance.

On this comeback, the two universities decided to cooperate in several projects: Implementing 2+2 and 3+1 articulation programs focusing on Korean Language students and students from other promising majors, such as Marketing, International Business, and International Economics; Organizing short-term programs such as semesters abroad, field trips, cultural exchanges; Planning on co-teaching programs, cooperation on scientific research, and co-organizing international academic conferences.

Concluding the meeting, UEF and HUFS reached a consensus on signing a strategic partnership - MOU in the near future to strengthen the relationship between the two universities. This will help students to have a different environment to study and improve their knowledge and skills with international lecturers and friends.

UEF is delighted to have established cooperation with HUFS. Plans for several programs are to be initiated, as some activities are expected to launch in the 2023 - 2024 academic year. UEFers, especially Korean Language students, stay tuned and not miss out on the programs from the International Institute.
