Monash music students will benefit from a memorandum of understanding signed between Monash University and the University of Huddersfield on Tuesday 6 September.
The aims of the MOU are to foster:
- Research collaboration in the areas of mutual interest;
- Exchange of academic materials which are made available by both parties;
- Exchange of scholars;
- Exchange of students;
- Cooperative seminars, workshops and other academic activities.
The MOU was the brainchild of staff from the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music and the School of Music, Humanities and Media at Huddersfield. However, the MOU is for all students and staff.
‘Monash music students will greatly benefit from the MOU’, according to Dr Paul Watt, research co-coordinator and acting deputy head of the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music.
‘Huddersfield has a long and excellent reputation in teaching and research, especially in the areas of contemporary music, and Monash students on exchange will greatly benefit from that expertise and reputation’, said Dr Watt. ‘On the other hand’, said Dr Watt, ‘Hudderfield students will be drawn to Monash’s strengths across all our music specializations’.
The MOU comes into effect immediately.
