Memorandum of Understandings

A memorandum of understanding (MOU or MoU) is a formal agreement between two or more parties outlined in a formal document. It is not legally binding but signals the willingness of the parties to move forward with a contract.

The MoU can be seen as the starting point for negotiations as it defines the scope and purpose of the talks. Such memoranda are most often seen in international treaty negotiations but also may be used in high-stakes business dealings such as merger talks.

The University has official agreements with a wide range of institutes/universities, which are as follows:
