More than 60 students completed their education on the joint programmes of the University of Wales and Russian-British Institute of Management in Chelyabinsk. All of them received international standard qualifications in two disciplines – Design and International Management.

In his welcoming speech James McGuire congratulated all parties and said: “The UK has an outstanding reputation for excellence in education and skills and British Diplomatic Missions in Russia are always happy to see new examples of UK-Russian cooperation in this sector. You can be sure that getting UK education is the right choice to enhance your future career prospects.”

Russian-British Institute of Management started to implement joint programmes with the University of Wales in 2009. Currently, this is the only one educational establishment in Chelyabinsk region providing 3 types of education under one roof – from the primary school to college and institute.
