The Queen Mary University of London and Ivy League Cornell University have struck a research and exchange collaboration agreement that will increase staff and student mobility. Cornell’s Global Hubs brand will be extended to the UK as a result of the collaboration, allowing students, staff, and alumni to study, conduct research, or teach at both universities.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for the Queen Mary University of London. This brilliant partnership will allow us to build on our existing relationship to deepen and extend our international research collaborations, strengthen student and staff mobility and further develop our policy and research impact,” said Colin Grant, vice-principal (International) for the UK institution.
Previously, the two universities worked together on migration research, swapped students with Queen Mary England School of Business and Management, and QMUL sponsored Cornell study abroad students.
By 2021, the universities plan to expand student exchange to all faculties.
