New Zealand’s Auckland University of Technology (AUT) and Indonesia’s BINUS University have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU).
New Zealand’s Ambassador to Indonesia, David Taylor, was present at the recent signing ceremony.
The arrangement between the two universities is an initiative that will benefit both countries, he said.
“Indonesia is a vital country for New Zealand and increasing the flow of people in both directions is helpful and the exchange of students is especially important.”
“AUT’s arrangement with BINUS to offer a double degree programme in IT science also provides a model of how universities in New Zealand and Indonesia can cooperate.
“It is also a ground-breaking arrangement as to my knowledge this is the first double-degree programme operating between the two countries.”
New Zealand offers eight first class universities and as Indonesia is a regional leader and a dynamic and rapidly advancing economy – the time was ripe for a cooperation of this kind, he said.
