Universities have to cooperate so that students can shop for more courses with other universities,” said Pro -Vice Chancellor, Professor S Sibanda.Prof. Sibanda indicated that there are three faculties currently involved in the exchange programme, Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Commerce and the Faculty of Information and Communication Science. He said that other faculties would join later.
The Registrar, Mr. F Mhlanga said that he was grateful to the Koreans because the signing of the MOU was not only the beginning of staff exchange but also spread to the student population with various faculties. “The exchange would yield much better output for staff and students,” he said.
