Uni of South Wales success in Vietnam

Kat from our office in HCMC coordinated a visit in October by Tom Hill from the University of South Wales (UK). Events included advising students at the British Council Exhibition, a presentation to students at the Open University in HCMC, and a seminar/workshop for students on ‘How to Write a Personal Statement’.

Uni South Wales is already popular with Vietnamese students, and this recent activity will ensure that numbers increase next year.

Then on to Vietnam and Thailand. Meeting with Kat in HCMC, and STIC in Thailand

Europe tour 2018

Off tomorrow for a quick tour of Europe, visiting International Schools to promote Keele University. More tomorrow…


Sunday 8 April: London to Copenhagen:

A short trip with British Airways, considerably enhanced by the use of the Business Lounge – free food and drinks – well done BA!

This event involves visiting a number of international schools around Europe. There are several UK universities taking part, and I met three of the representatives at the airport, all on the same flight. Thanks to Keele University for making all the arrangements.

I have been to Copenhagen several times before, but there is little that standout for me other than a visit to the Tuborg brewery when I was 16. It left a lasting impression on me – I don’t think I have drunk Tuborg beer since then.

Found a delightful restaurant near the hotel called Babette Guldsmeden – excellent food and service.

Looks good for the first school visit tomorrow
