That’s partly because the UKhas some of the best universities in the world as well as a schools sector which attracts people from all over the planet. But it’s also because many educational establishments are actively and successfully promoting British education right here in Kyiv.
One example is the Edinburgh Business School for whom I recently hosted a reception at the residence to mark their fourth intake and third year of activities in Ukraine. I have been working with the EBS for some time (see eg here and here).
It was great to see them making such good progress, with their programmes now having reached 150 MBA students – and, as always, to meet the students themselves, who struck me as a keen and motivated bunch, many of them from blue-chip companies operating here in Kyiv.
