International education partnerships

Apply for international school partnerships and learn about Alberta’s agreements with other regions around the world.

International partnerships

A Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) is a formal agreement between 2 or more parties that establishes an official partnership. Each MOU is unique and outlines the commitments and outcomes that all groups agree on.

These agreements and partnerships contribute to a variety of international education related activities including:

Some of Alberta’s MOU partners include:

  • China – the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban)
  • Germany – Federal Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany
  • Japan – the Japan Foundation
  • Spain – the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport
  • Ukraine – the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, and the Department of Education and Science of Lviv Oblast State

School twinnings

School twinnings are partnerships between Alberta schools and schools from other counties.

These help Alberta students interact with students from around the world through activities such as:

  • letters
  • email
  • video conferencing
  • school trips

These partnerships are a great opportunity for Alberta students to learn about other languages, cultures and lifestyles.
