Sunyani Technical University (STU) believes that the aims of higher education with respect to teaching/learning, research/discovery, and community engagement can be better achieved by dedicating to strong collaborations with other academic institutions, organizations and industries. STU, therefore, seeks to collaborate with interested institutions, organizations and industries for cooperation in relevant areas such as:
It is crucial to note that the respective responsibilities of STU, the partner University/Institution/Organization and the staff/student involved (where applicable) will vary depending on the type of collaboration. There are also variations in the complexity of the partnerships and in the time required for the development and establishment of partnerships. A proposed partnership may combine more than one type of collaboration.
Study/Work Abroad is an opportunity for students to study or do internships abroad whilst undertaking their programme of study. Study/work abroad could be both incoming and outgoing in the form of Bilateral Exchange or one-way study abroad.
STU and the partner University/Organization jointly develop and deliver a research programme or jointly develop proposals for grant applications in areas of mutual interest. The responsibilities of each institution in financial, administrative and quality assurance matters, etc., are to be spelt out in the agreement.
A strong staff is a fuel that enhances any University’s ability to develop its own intellectual resources, promote innovation and knowledge and optimize its capacity. STU is open to a range of capacity building partnerships, especially in the training of staff to attain a Ph.D.
STU authorizes an approved Partner University to deliver (and sometimes access) part or all of an approved STU programme, which leads to STU award. STU could also deliver (and sometimes access) part or all of an approved Partner University’s programme, which leads to the Partner University’s award.
Staff mobility provides an opportunity for staff of partner institutions to spend a short period in another institution (normally overseas) to conduct field research, learn about cultures and share expertise with contemporaries in teaching, research, or administration. Staff mobility can have an important role in capacity building with partner institutions and can provide development opportunity for the individuals concerned.
