International visit creates new opportunities


Representatives from the Al-Ahliyya Amman University (AAU) in Jordan will be visiting the University of Bradford to look at exciting research and teaching collaborations.

The two Universities signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in July 2018 and discussions will be taking place to look at possible joint programmes between the two universities especially in the area of Pharmacy, Health, Clinical psychology, Engineering, Business and Law.

The delegation from AAU including their Vice Chancellor, Dean of Pharmacy and owner will be visiting the University on 4 and 5 February where they will be meeting with people from across the University including Professor Shirley Congdon, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) and Head of Pharmacy & Medical Sciences, Professor Marcus Rattray.

AAU is creating a partnership with the School of Pharmacy & Medical Sciences, which supports PhD studentships, MSc studentships, staff and student exchanges and joint research projects.  AAU has already sponsored four scholars to carry out PhD research in pharmacy at the University of Bradford.

Professor Alastair Goldman, Dean of the Faculty of Life Sciences said: “The faculty of Life Sciences is always looking to strengthen our worldwide partnerships, and we are delighted to continue working with AAU in a growing partnership that help us develop international exchange and understanding” 

Professor Marcus Rattray, Head of Pharmacy & Medical Sciences at the University of Bradford said: “We are pleased to extend a warm welcome to Bradford for our visitors from Al-Ahliyya University.  We look forward to continuing to develop our partnership working in the area of pharmacy and medical sciences."
