Exchange Programme with University of Brescia, Italy
2017 July 24

Under the MoU between the University of Brescia, Italy and the University of Peradeniya initiated by the International Research Centre, a student and staff exchange programme was initiated. Under the programme, UoP received 5 scholarships for PhD students for 6 months and 5 scholarships for academic staff members for 1 month. The staff members have already completed their programmes in Italy and the students will complete their programme by September 2017.

In addition, two administrative staff members from the University of Brescia visited the UoP on 24 July 2017 for a period of one week. Dr. Aiko Terao, Head of the International Student Mobility Division and Ms. Margherita Andreis visited the UoP from the University of Brescia.

Their programme at the University of Peradeniya included discussions with academic members and the Vice-Chancellor on initiating and developing collaborations between the two Universities. The discussions were resulted in agreeing to apply for another Erasmus programme for exchange of students and academic staff as well as administrative staff members between the two Universities.
