Additionally, departments are especially interested in hosting international teaching faculty who have the intention to develop future institutionalized co-operation with the UP. Furthermore, if no appropriate local counterpart, i.e. co-professor can be appointed for your course, the UPISU Committee may prefer to select a different course/visiting professor, even though your application material is of high quality.
