This week, Alex Hughes, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Global Engagement, Jon Pike, Director of Internationalisation at Westminster Business School, and Polly Lu, Recruitment Officer for South East Asia, visited longstanding as well as new partner institutions in Thailand.

The University’s delegation also celebrated the history and future of Westminster's engagement with the country at an alumni event held at the Montien Hotel, Surawongse Road, Bangkok, welcoming former students from a range of cohorts and academic disciplines.

The University of Westminster has well established university connections in Thailand, and a substantial community of alumni and current Thai students.

Internationalisation is key to the University’s strategic vision and identity. We have extensive connections with universities and industries throughout the world and our Global Engagement Strategy seeks to strengthen and deepen those connections ever further. Our international partnerships and teaching support the development of our academic and research portfolios. Experiences that enable our staff and students to operate in an increasingly interconnected, internationalised world are key to our approach.
