His Excellency Shiv Shankar Mukherjee visited the University as part of his first visit to Wales since his appointment earlier this year. Welcomed by Professor Ken Woodhouse, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Engagement, he had the opportunity to learn about the University’s world-leading research.
His Excellency met with students and senior members of staff from the Business School, School of Engineering, Law School, and School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies. Expressing an interest in existing links with institutions in India, he discussed opportunities for strengthening these links and developing new ones.
Sandra Elliott, Director of the University’s International Development Division, said: "We are pleased to have welcomed His Excellency Shiv Shankar Mukherjee to the University. Cardiff has a strong history of attracting quality students from India and this visit is evidence of our increasing links with the country".
The High Commissioner’s visit came at a particularly appropriate time as 2008 has seen the highest ever number of Indian students enrolling at the University. There are currently almost 500 Indian students studying across the University at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
