The workshop is being organised by the Office of the Assistant Vice Chancellor for External Cooperation at SQU.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the workshop yesterday, Her Highness Sayyidah Dr Mona bint Fahd Al Said, SQU Assistant Vice Chancellor for External Cooperation, said that being the fourth clause in the charter of Sultan Qaboos University, internationalisation is an issue that the university aims to strengthen in order to raise its profile and promote collaboration with prestigious international universities.
