The American university already collaborates by sending students to the URV for the summer research programme and faculty-led programmes
Kristina Kutsukos, Program Development Associate at the Global Experience Office of Northeastern University, visited the URV on 7 September. The visit included a tour of the URV’s halls of residence, a meeting with the International Center, a meeting at the Sescelades Campus with Allan Mackie and Magda Constantí, from the School of Chemical Engineering, and Domènec Puig, from the School of Engineering; and a working lunch with Jordi Riu, from the Faculty of Chemistry, and Blanca Domingo, from the FURV.
Ms Kutsukos, who is also in charge of outgoing Study Abroad students to Spain and Portugal, is seeking to expand the existing collaboration in summer courses to other areas of study such as Engineering, Sciences or Psychology.
Northeastern University and the URV already have an agreement regarding the exchange of students, and this was also discussed during the meeting with a view to expanding the mobility opportunities available to students.
