Aside from preparing for the second iteration of their joint project, Overseas Merit Fellowship (OMF) Thailand, Mahidol University International College (MUIC) and Ngee Ann Polytechnic in Singapore has a new collaboration in the works.
Ms. Worada Apirat, Head of Project Development Unit, Ms. Theeranun Leksuthee, Foreign Relations Officer, and Dr. Ploy Sud-on, a lecturer of Business Administration Division, visited Ngee Ann Polytechnic on January 20-21, 2020.
Ngee Ann Polytechnic has been organizing with MUIC since 2019 the OMF Thailand project. From a detailed discussion with its team—Mr. Mun Kwok On, Senior Advisor, Mr. Ng Tze Thim Ray, Assistant Director of the International Office, and Ms. Jamie Teo, Senior Manager of the Student Development Office—it will be held again in June this year under the theme “Aging Society.”
Additionally, a new project with the School of Health and Science was discussed. Dr. Phang Chiew Hun, Director of Academic Planning Office, and Ms. Sivaneswary Palanibilo, lecturer of the School of Health and Science, are the coordinators for the program which would bring Ngee Ann Polytechnic students to MUIC in December to explore Thailand’s health care system.
After the meeting, MUIC’s representatives went on a campus tour to see the polytechnic’s students’ life, enjoy the beautiful view of the campus and also to reunite with students who had joined the program last year. MUIC is looking forward to undertaking these programs with Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
