The High Commissioner of India visit

The High Commissioner of India to the UK, YK Sinha, visited the University on 3 May to discuss activity between the South-West and India and meet with students at Bath.

Professor Peter Lambert, Pro-Vice Chancellor (Learning and Teaching), and Mike Nicholson, Director of Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach, welcomed our visitors before they were given a tour of the Roman Baths.

The High Commissioner took time to discuss the University’s extensive activity with Indian institutions and the numbers of Indian students choosing to apply to the University. Undergraduate applications are up 28.5% on 2016/17 and big increases have been seen in applications to study Computer Science and Psychology this year.

Mike Nicholson chaired an engaging meeting between the High Commissioner and students of various disciplines from undergraduate to doctoral levels. Discussion points included the application process to study in the United Kingdom, the placement opportunities within industry provided by Bath, and how the High Commissioner’s Office can support Indian diaspora students at the University and in the South-West.

Professor Peter Lambert said: “It was a pleasure to host the High Commissioner and present him with the opportunity to meet with our students to discuss their experiences at Bath and in the United Kingdom. We are very proud of the diversity on campus and the international community who have made Bath their home. I look forward to broadening and deepening our collaboration with India through the High Commissioner’s Office”.
