HFBK University of Fine Arts Hamburg in Germany is seeking collaboration with Makerere University’s Margaret Trowell of Industrial and Fine Art (MTSIFA). A team comprised of Prof. Ingo Ferdinand Offermanns, the Vice President and Professor of Graphic Art and Mr. Eik Pockrandt, Head International Office are on a three – day working visit to Makerere University to explore student exchange opportunities between the two Universities.
The duo last week met with the management team of the University and had deliberations aimed at finding the best ways possible to materialize the proposal of teaming up with Makerere University.
The Vice Chancellor Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe welcomed the team and informed them that that the University was open to partnerships and collaborations in line with its policy of Internationalization.
He said as one of the oldest Universities on the continent, Makerere was harnessing the achievements realized overtime through celebrating one hundred years of existence and was therefore open to new ideas and opportunities for both staff and students
