exchange of visits "OZ in Morocco19" and "Morocco in OZ 20"

The Australia-Middle East Journalism Exchange organises in partnership with the Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco and with the support of the Australia Council for Australian-Arab Relations, for the second consecutive year, an exchange of visits, this time, entitled “OZ in Morocco” and “Morocco in Oz” to be held in late 2019 and early 2020 for Students journalists from the University of Deakin (Victoria) and their peers from the Moroccan Institute of Information and Communication (Rabat).

This exchange of visits will allow through a mixture of professional and cultural activities, and collaborative project-based learning within a robust academic framework, building skills and capacities to better cross-cultural communicators throughout their careers.

These two events taking place in Morocco and Australia will allow students-journalists of the University of Deakin and their colleagues from the Advanced Institute of Information and Communication in Rabat to discover the different aspects of Media landscape in both countries and to get an insight about the relevant common features between Morocco and Australia in the field of Media which is vital for enhancing cultural exchange and understanding between Rabat and Canberra.

The first phase of this program will be the visit to be paid by the students-journalists of the University of Deakin to Morocco in late 2019, which will include various visits to a number of institutions, universities and historical monuments in Morocco.

In this regard, the new delegates of “Oz in Morocco” will be introduced into the wide range of media programs established in the Kingdom and will have an interactive discussion with their official interlocutors on a number of areas and subjects of interest to their journalistic enquiries.

Furthermore, the establishment of an additional edition “Morocco in OZ 2020” will surely bring more complementarity to the cooperation between Morocco and Australia in the fields of Media and Communication, broadly and to the interaction between the High Institute of Information and Communication in Rabat and the University of Deakin, specifically.

The Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco supports this second edition of “OZ in Morocco” and the first ever “Morocco in OZ” due to the relevance of the fields of Media and Communication in establishing closer bridges of cooperation, on all levels, between countries and to the positive impact that it will have on the short and long terms, wishing students-journalists from both sides success in their promising projects.
