Canadian students' internship at the ÓU

The collaboration between Óbuda University and Queen's University in Kingston has reached another milestone. Thanks to the agreements signed last year, undergraduate and postgraduate student exchange programmes have been launched, with four Canadian students recently starting their internships at the University Research and Innovation Center (EKIK).

"We have reached another milestone in our long-term cooperation with Queen's University of Canada," said Prof. Dr. Levente Kovács on the arrival of the students. "Under our framework agreement signed last year, individual student exchange programmes have started. The students have started their internships at EKIK under the professional guidance of Dr. Tamás Haidegger, Director General. I am delighted with this progress, as a cornerstone of the university's rectorial strategy is to promote study exchange programmes and to encourage more foreign students to participate in Óbuda University's courses.

As we reported earlier, an agreement on cooperation between Queen's University of Canada and Óbuda University was signed by Prof. Dr. Levente Kovács, Rector and Sandra den Otter, Vice Rector for International Affairs, last August.
