On November 14th 2019, staff from 5 universities in the United Kingdom (Oxford Brookes University, King's College London, University of Warwick, Newcastle University, and University of Bristol) visited our Higashi-Hiroshima Campus, as part of study tour of the Association of University Administrators (AUA) in UK.
The meeting started with a brief introduction of Hiroshima University (HU) and its current efforts concerning “international strategy”, “finance affairs”, “education”, “student support”, “personnel development” etc., followed by a lively exchange of opinions. This meeting gave a good opportunity for us to reaffirm the strengths and the challenges of HU, as well as to compare the circumstances surrounding universities in Japan and UK.
With this visit, we hope that academic exchange with universities in UK will be further promoted.
