GUST Collaborates with Swansea University on Exchange Programs
Dr. Salah Al-Sharhan, GUST Vice President for Academic Affairs, paid a visit to Swansea University (SU) in the UK to meet with Professor Richard B. Davies, Vice Chancellor. GUST and SU signed a cooperation agreement to promote student, scholar and academic staff exchange programs, and other joint activities such as seminars and workshops, and collaborative research in areas of mutual interest.
Swansea University has 53 centers and institutes that are interdisciplinary and externally facing with industry, government bodies and charities as they demonstrate a clear evidence of high quality research, supported by publications, research income and a thriving postgraduate community.
SU was founded in 1920, and since has thrived on exploration, discovery, and offering the right balance of excellent teaching and research, matched by an enviable quality of life. The university has large-scale developments which helped in solidifying its rank in the top thirty research universities, and climbing up the UK Research Excellence Framework League Table, from 52nd in 2008, to 26th in 2014.
