During their stay in Europe, Cambodian staff will discuss a potential Joint Master Degree between the three European and the four Cambodian Universities. Along with the visit, it must enable peer-to-peer interaction by mutual learning between the host universities and the guest. It must pass the opportunity to learn and get inspired by the PhD program/courses in EU Partners institutions in order to improve it in Cambodia, and eventually launch a joint Master or PhD program.
In early 2018, the European partners will come to Cambodia in order to finalize the report about a PhD and Master Courses catalogue and its administrative management.
