"Zaman University Cambodia" which was officially opened by His Excellency Dr. Sok An in Phnom Penh on 21 February, 2011 is expanding its network with universities in US.
Zaman University has signed an agreement with a university in US to exchange students studying Computer Science, Business Administration and Banking and Finance programs.
The delegation led by the Rector Dr. Erkan Polatdemir, visited a number of universities in US to weigh the options for possible partnerships.
Zaman University and North American University in Houston signed a student exchange agreement which allows students from Zaman University to continue their studies in United States. The students from Zaman University will study Year 1 and Year in Cambodia and Year 3 and Year 4 in Houston at North American University. The students will receive double degree from Zaman University and North American University.
The exchange program includes only Computer Science, Business Administration and Banking and Finance degree programs.
The only criterion for Zaman University students to study in US is to get a Grade Point Average (GPA) above 2.8 upon 4. With this GPA, students will get further discounts and be awarded with scholarships.
This agreement has shown that the challenging and academically stimulating international curriculum at Zaman University starts to bear fruits.
There will be other exchange programs such as exchanging academic staff, student orientation programs (both in Cambodia and USA), rural development projects and urbanization with Texas A & M University, Rice University and University of St. Thomas.
The university plans to sign more exchange programs with universities in Europe, Australia and New Zealand in near future.
