Other joint projects
Overview of previous and existing cooperation between Chancellor College and Volda University College.
The program started in 2003. Chancellor College / University of Malawi (CC) and Volda University College (VUC) are partners in the project “Exchange for Development” (EfD). This project is part of the Fredskorpset–ung program and has been ongoing for about four years so far. There are three more partners in the program (one from Malawi and two from Namibia).
Except for the first year, we have exchanged four students each year between our two institutions. The students stay at partner institution for three months. The partner program has conducted three partner meetings with representatives from all partners: Volda, Norway, May 2003; Zomba, Malawi, November 2004; Windhoek, Namibia, November 2005; and Lillehammer/Oslo, Norway, September 2006.
Memorandum of Understanding
In November 2004 the two institutions signed a “Memorandum of Understanding”. The goal of this memorandum is: “To encourage direct contact and cooperation between their [the institutions] faculty, research and administrative staff”. Within the fields that are mutually acceptable, the following general forms of cooperation will be pursued:
- Staff and students for study and research
- Study abroad programs
- Student exchange programs
- Quota programs
- Visits by and interchange of staff for research, teaching and discussions
- Exchange of information including, but not limited to, exchange of library resources and research publications
- Collaborative research activities
CC is included in the Quota Program at VUC. One quota student from CC started her studies at VUC in August 2006. The second starts August 2007.
