Academic Cooperation and Exchange Agreements (MOU: Memorandum of Understanding)

The Center for African Area Studies (CAAS) of Kyoto University has established academic cooperation and exchange agreements with universities and research institutions in African countries. In order to support students and promote exchanges at the Graduate School of Asian and African Area Studies (ASAFAS) of Kyoto University, MOUs are often established between the three parties including CAAS, ASAFAS, and research institutions in Africa. Through these agreements, CAAS actively promotes the exchange of researchers, including graduate students, the promotion of joint research, the exchange of data, and publications, and the organization of symposia and workshops. For detailed information on the current Inter-Department/ Faculty academic cooperation and exchange agreements of CAAS, see the Kyoto University website.

Based on these inter-department/faculty academic exchange agreements, CAAS has developed several Inter-University academic exchange agreements between Kyoto University and universities in Africa. For a list of universities in Africa that currently have Inter-University academic exchange agreements with Kyoto University, please refer to the Kyoto University website.
