The College of Nursing External Linkages Programs offer an avenue for partnerships and collaborations with international and local institutions of higher education and other organizations around the globe. It fosters the development of various activities related to improving nursing education, through faculty and student mobility programs, research, and other teaching-learning activities.  

UST’s aim is to prepare the students for a role in the global arena of ideas and work. It envisions to create a University community in which cross-cultural and international knowledge, attitudes, experiences and actions are part of the present and become a tradition and a heritage of the future. It is therefore necessary to build and strengthen programs that will facilitate students’ mobility, help them develop cross-cultural competencies, and have respect for cultural, ethnic diversity and religious tolerance.

Local and international linkages/consortia impact and influence the professional growth of the students and faculty of the College. Through the student mobility programs, participants were provided with the opportunity to enhance their understanding of cross-cultural health and nursing care. The range of experiences enhances global outlook, cultural sensitivity, communication skills, employability, leadership, adaptation and interpersonal skills and allows the establishment of life-long friendships. Faculty members, through mentoring programs, grow in knowledge and skill competencies; and gain insight into best practices.

The College of Nursing welcomes the establishment of Inbound and Outbound Student Mobility programs; Inbound and Outbound Faculty Mobility programs; Research mentoring/collaborations among faculty members; International conference/seminar scholarship or partnership programs.
