Currently, it has entered into exchange agreements with 58 universities and institutions in 16 countries and established a track record of success that includes faculty exchanges, long-term student exchanges, and short-term overseas training. The University also facilitates intercultural understanding and international exchange through English Plaza “E-pla” (an English-learning facility) and various events.
