Linking with different Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) and organizations across the Philippines, Asia, the Americas and Europe has been one of Our Lady of Fatima University’s (OLFU) strong pursuit for the past years. Partnerships with HEIs across the globe present opportunity for the sharing of expertise, ideas and knowledge for the improvement of the educational system.
Establishing ties with these local and international HEIs and organizations always renders both sides vulnerable to close examination and scrutiny of fellow educators. However, this vulnerability and openness help raise the University’s standards and the application of new methods.
From the time OLFU first sought out to establish strategic partnerships, it has gained much in terms of training for its faculty members, has increased opportunities for research, and has benefited exchanges of students, which allows them to complete their program in OLFU or other partner institutions thereby expanding their horizons.
