Chandigarh, Nov 22 (UNI) Five leading universities from United Kingdom visited the city today to woo the Indian students to pursue their higher education in UK.
The representatives of Universities of Birmingham, Liverpool, East Anglia, Brunel and Salford are visiting various cities in North, on an invitation of their Indian representatives, OCA Education UK.
Mr Steven Roden from University of Salford said that the delegation also called on Panjab University vice chancellor Dr R C Sobti to explore the possibilities of split-site PhD or external registration, joint research, joint programme delivery and staff development.
