The University of British Columbia (UBC) and the University of Exeter sealed new strategic collaborations during meetings in Vancouver in October.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Steve Smith and Professor Helen Burt (VP for Research & International at UBC) formalised the first Student Exchange agreement between the two Universities. This enables reciprocal exchange of students in Kinesiology at UBC and Sports & Health Sciences at Exeter and results from engagement between academic staff in the respective faculties.
They also formalised a Statement of Cooperation between UBC’s Faculty of Arts and the University of Exeter, strengthening the relationship between the Institutions and encouraging cooperation in the areas of Research and Education in Museums, Heritage and History.
Professor Kip Jeffrey, Head of the Camborne School of Mines (CSM) at the University of Exeter also met UBC counterparts in the Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering to discuss collaboration through student exchange and Research.
While in Vancouver, Sir Steve hosted a Global Conversation on the future of the mining industry, with over 110 guests in attendance including alumni, corporate sponsors, and university partners. The event showcased the pioneering work of the Camborne School of Mines in this area, supported by the CSM Trust.
