Out and About – Kingston University, London
The UK is a popular university choice for Russian and expat students in Moscow, and links are frequent. On 25 January, Study Group hosted Kingston University at the Novotel as they launched their new international foundation course. A large group of potential parents and education agents learned that Kingston has a 100-year history and 22,000 students, of whom 10% are visitors to the UK. Particular strengths include art and design, business and links with industry. Two Kingston graduates, Stanislav and Oxana, spoke warmly of their time there, and the reception afterwards was a friendly event. Lead presenter Rebecca Blake continued her visit with careers talks at prominent international schools in Moscow.
