The support of the Royal Government of Cambodia, particularly the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) is critical to the Royal University of Phnom Penh. All degrees and programs at RUPP have been approved by the Government.
Government support covers utility costs, staff salaries, and important resources such as some computers and laboratory equipments. The Prime Minister and other government representatives also regularly participate in the University’s graduation as well as other ceremonies throughout the academic year.
In 1999, RUPP became a member of the ASEAN University Network (AUN). The AUN, established
in 1995 to enable capacity building and collaboration among South East Asian higher education centers, provides opportunities for staff and students to attend training courses and conferences in other ASEAN nations. The President of the Royal University of Phnom Penh, Lav Chhiv Eav, is the RUPP’s representative at the AUN.
RUPP has a strong international focus. It has signed Memoranda of Understanding with many international universities. These MOU provide for academic cooperation between the universities, including staff and student exchanges and curriculum development assistance. In 2011-2012, the RUPP holds active MOUs with the following universities and research centers:
