School of Education to collaborate with King Saud University

1 April 2008 |

On 22nd January 2008 we were very happy to host a visit from Professor Abdullah al-Othman, Rector of King Saud University in Riyadh , Saudi Arabia. King Saud is the oldest and largest university in the country, and the Rector's visit was a follow up to the visit to King Saud made by Prof John Leach earlier in the month, as a keynote speaker at a workshop entitled' 'Developing Science and Mathematics Education: Vision and International Partnership' .

At the end of very fruitful day of discussion, The Rector and the Vice Chancellor signed one 'Service Contract' between King Saud and the University of Leeds as a whole, and another more specifically between King Saud and the School of Education. In addition a further contract was signed outlining the teaching support that the School of Education will provide for King Saud's new MA TESOL programme. We hope that this meeting represents just the first stage in a long and wide ranging collaboration.
