MoU: Ministry of Education and UBC

On March 26, 2012, Mongolia’s Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and the University of British Columbia’s Norman B Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering and Institute of Asian Research signed a Memorandum of Understanding aimed at intensifying cooperation between UBC and Mongolian universities.

The MoU specified a number of areas of potential cooperation including the exchange of visiting scholars, joint organization of conferences and the eligibility of Mongolian students for UBC’s International Partial Tuition Scholarships.

Existing links between UBC and Mongolian institutions, particularly the Mongolian Univ of Science and Technology, focus on the area of mining.
