A new partnership between Perth College UHI and Lapland University of Applied Sciences has made a significant step forward with the signing of a memorandum of understanding that will see both institutions work together to set a path for future study and research collaborations.
The like-minded institutions already share interests in adventure, sports tourism and international business, and this partnership will support opportunities for international student and staff collaborations.
The unique exchange programme, which is being coordinated though Perth College UHI, allows Lapland University of Applied Sciences students to immerse themselves in a Scottish-environment learning setting. Likewise, UHI students will have the chance to study how nature impacts regional industry at one of the most northerly European universities.
Delivery has already started, with a joint project ‘Global Sports Environments’ which saw both partners participate in a presentation of national key sporting characteristics and international networks opportunities.
