Vietnamese educators visit King's
March 19, 2013
King’s welcomed a group of elementary and secondary school principals from eight different schools in Vietnam as part of a cross Canada tour of universities. The educators are here to learn about post-secondary educational opportunities in Canada for their students. While in London they visited King’s and Brescia.
“We are beginning to build the King’s brand in Vietnam. The country is in the top four growing markets in terms of internationalization and we want to create a presence there as they consider where to send their students for post-secondary educations abroad,” says Matt Brazely, Director of Administration at The English Language Centre, Western.
King’s Dean Sauro Camiletti and President David Sylvester along with Registrar Marilyn Mason all welcomed the guests over lunch in the Board Room. The visit to King’s was arranged by Gardiner Wilson of British Columbia, a consultant who co-ordinates international educational tours. “The Vietnamese principals want to learn about our programs, scholarships and campus life so they can then present Canadian options to their students back home,” says Gardiner.
