Extending its ideology of bringing global knowledge to India, Whistling Woods International (WWI) has partnered with University of the Arts London (UAL) to initiate various exciting ventures like student exchange programmes, academic cooperation, and other collaborative activities to strengthen the relationship between the two institutions. WWI has been a pioneer in the film and media education industry for the past 16 years and this collaboration is another feather in their multi-pronged hat.
Speaking about the partnership, Rahul Puri, Head of Academics, WWI said, “We have always believed that collaboration is the key to development. We are delighted to partner with University of the Arts London (UAL) and firmly believe that this association will lead to international benefits from an educational and intellectual perspective. This will give our students access to technical knowledge, on a global level, to elevate their careers”.
Academic affiliations such as this one will help students of both the institutions understand work and culture across the globe that will hone their skills and expertise. This will facilitate an opportunity for the development of a programme, exchange of research & knowledge, as well as collaborative or joint research projects.
Roni Brown, Deputy Vice Chancellor for Education at University of the Arts London (UAL), said, “We at UAL are delighted to be partnering with Whistling Woods International, a respected international provider of film, communication, and creative arts education. The partnership will enable greater collaboration between our institutions, with opportunities for joint student projects and innovative, world-leading research. We look forward to working with Whistling Woods International – learning and sharing from each other to ensure that UAL continues to offer the very best in creative education with a truly global reach.”
This partnership is an addition to WWI’s existing global educational expansion. WWI has collaborated with 14+ global institutions of excellence across the US, the UK, Europe, Australia and more. Some of the universities are University of Bradford, DePaul University, Syracuse University, and Chapman University of California. These alliances have resulted in joint film projects, active international study groups, student and faculty exchanges, short-term courses, amongst the major benefits of global collaboration.
