Jain University inks a MOU with Camosun College, Canada to deliver world-class sports education16 March 2016
Jain University signed a MOU with Camosun College, Canada, for collaboration in the fields of sports education, training and sports sector skills development. Dr. N. Sundararajan, Vice Chancellor, Jain University, and Sherri Bell, President, Camosun College, represented the respective institutions in the execution of seven-year partnership agreement.
The Jain University-Camosun College partnership drifts from a major MOU signed by Camosun College and India’s National Skill Development Corporation in 2015, where Camosun pledged to work with Indian partners to develop a national sport skills training program. Jain University is the first university to move forward with this major national venture and becomes the foundation partner in work that will include the development of short course “train-the-trainer” programs, delivery of Camosun programming, and participation in the development of sport training facilities in the Bangalore region.
The MOU is effective to 2023. In addition to the train-the-trainer programs, Camosun will co-operate with Jain University to deliver Camosun diplomas in Sport Management and Exercise and Wellness at Jain University campuses in Bangalore, with the option for Jain University students to complete the final two years of their degree at the Interurban campus in Victoria. The agreement will also allow qualifying Jain University students to transfer to Camosun College to complete the Bachelor of Business Administration, the Diploma in Business Administration and Post-Degree Diplomas in Business.
