Universities Wales Weekly Wrap Up – 26 August 2016

Indian Journalists to visit Wales

Universities Wales is working with the Welsh Government to arrange the visit of two Indian education journalists to Wales the week of the 17th October. The aim of the visit is to promote international student experience in Wales and to demonstrate the open, friendly and welcoming university community that awaits prospective Indian students. They will be here for a week and will travel around Wales.

Study in Wales – Social Media Campaign has agreed to run a two-week long social media campaign for Study in Wales this October. The aim will be to showcase to an international audience the very best that Wales has to offer as a study destination.  Universities Wales will provide the key messages for this campaign, but we are keen to capture as much content (quotes, videos, blogs etc.) from institutions as possible. Please contact Gwen Williams ( should you have any suitable content that you would like to promote.

A new cross-party group has been set up at the Welsh Assembly on ‘Wales International’; the group will be chaired by Rhun ap Iorwerth AM and British Council Wales will provide the secretariat.

Universities Wales has been invited to present on Global Wales at the meeting.
