HUSO KKU seeks academic collaboration at the University of Leeds
On September 29, 2022, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, led by Associate Professor Dr. Orathai Piyura, Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, had a meeting with Professor Emma Cayley, Head of the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies, the University of Leeds, United Kingdom and Professor Martin Seeger, Professor of Thai Studies to discuss academic collaboration between the two institutions. It was an honor to have Phrakhru Siritham Prateep, Abbot of Wat Buddharam Leeds, the United Kingdom join the discussion.
The discussion was fruitful as both Faculties and Wat Buddharam Leeds agreed to hold exchange activities for teachers and students from the Faculties. For teacher exchange, it will focus on attending foreign language training courses. As for student exchange, it will focus on short-term exchange. Phrakhru Siritham Prateep, the Abbot, also offered to support accommodation for teachers and students from Khon Kaen University who will travel to study on exchange with the University of Leeds. The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is expected to be signed in November 2022.
