A delegation of academics and students of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University led by Prof. Dr. S. Kayhan Ülker visited Tokyo University of the Arts (TUA) from March 15 to 18, 2016.

The campus of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University

TUA has had student exchanges and staff member exchanges with Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University so far, but it is now promoting a plan to expand the scope of collaboration with the Turkish partner, backed by the decision of the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology to provide financial support for the plan under the Enhancing Global Competitiveness in Higher Education project in 2015.

The visit involved a campus tour to the sculpture and architecture facilities as well as a meeting, during which the two universities exchanged opinions to deepen mutual understanding on their respective educational policies and the situation of students, and discussed how they would proceed with future exchange activities. At a convivial gathering, students of both universities enjoyed conversation on their respective art fields and works, and the characteristics of the educational and research environments at each university.

Based on the enhanced collaboration, faculty members and students of the two partner universities will aim to achieve mutual growth by learning further more each other’s distinctive art culture.
