175th anniversary celebrations in Mumbai

17 June 2013

The University of Westminster celebrated its 175th anniversary at the Taj Land’s End in Mumbai in May.

The event on 2 May, hosted by Dr Myszka Guzkowska, Pro Vice-Chancellor: (International Strategy and External Engagement), was attended by Westminster staff, partners, alumni and prospective students.

In all, over one hundred guests came along to the event including nearly fifty of our alumni from Mumbai - it was fantastic to hear them exchange stories and network.

Mr Karan Desai made a speech on behalf of our alumni in Mumbai, and we hope that the association will become more active in the city from now on. Dr Indu Shahani, Principal of H.R. College in Mumbai, presented the University of Westminster with a citation from her college and spoke of our history of working together.

This was the latest event to be organised by our team based in New Delhi since officially launching our presence in India last April. Our India base camp team has been working hard for more than eighteen months now to provide a registration and help centre for prospective Indian students and to develop important Indian academic, governmental, corporate and alumni partnerships.
