Report: Studybritish.com events in Baku

Despite the devalued Manat and suspended Scholarship Programme, interest in studying in the UK was high and the exhibition was well attended. The group also visited ADA University, and on Friday evening a lively Alumni Reception was held, with over 70 UK Alumni attending.

Levant Education continues to be committed to Azerbaijan, working with universities on a variety of levels: networking, alumni events, recruitment events and market analysis. The majority of Levant’s clients use its services to improve brand awareness and direct recruitment, an increasingly important channel for university recruitment to the UK.

The Studybritish.com Exhibition and related events will return to Baku in October.

The Independent Complaints Body Verita will soon publish its report into the behaviour of the British Council in Azerbaijan in particular. Levant Education agreed cooperation with the British Council to launch UK-focussed events in Azerbaijan and Turkey in 2012, and paid UKTI for support services. The British Council then used that cooperation and support to launch a competing events, despite assurances of support and non-competition. 

Baku Autumn 2015: Report

UK universities returned to Baku with Studybritish.com for a full programme of exhibition, networking and alumni events. 

ukaz_roundtable_webWith the emphasis on building capacity and developing HE in Azerbaijan, the Ministry of Education encouraged us to explore HE cooperation and partnerships between UK and Azerbaijani institutions. During a UK – Azerbaijan Round Table Meeting, UK and Azerbaijan international relations colleagues discussed best practice and realistic opportunities for working together in the next 5 years.

On the Friday evening alumni from 3 of the visiting universities – Kings College London, University College London and Manchester University – competed in a University Challenge Quiz, facing questions about life in the UK, international relations, UK education…with bonus rounds testing the alumni to their limits.

On the Saturday, more than 200 students from local schools and universities came to the Hilton for our UK University exhibition. Despite the current mystery surrounding the government scholarship programme, interest was high from ambitious future UG’s and PG’s.

The original and first UK-focussed education exhibition in Azerbaijan returned to Baku on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th October, combining a high quality exhibition, Education Ministry meeting and an enjoyable Alumni Reception.

Once again universities enjoyed meeting qualified students at the excellent Fairmont Hotel Flame Towers. Students preparing applications for UK universities as part of the Scholarship Programme of the Ministry of Education, as well as many self-funding students, appreciated the opportunity to narrow down their course / university choices.

“Such a successful event. We were very happy with the fair and received very high quality enquiries. Well done! Looking forward to future events.”
Noomi Weinberg, Kings College London. 

“Very well organised, I spoke to a good number of students who seemed of reasonable calibre and the venue was a good one! The boards with notable alumni were also an excellent idea.”
Dan Newby, London School of Economics.

“A successful fair and we met some very good students.”
Hannah Legg, University College London. 

“The fair was very good, it was very busy and as usual the calibre of students was very high. I felt most students were very sharp and ready to take up education abroad”.
Nilufer Rashidova, University of East Anglia. 

“I have to say it was a very well organised event which attracted good quality and number of interested students for us. It is obvious that King’s is well regarded in the market. The alumni event was very good idea, was good to see so many of King’s alumni turning up”.
Nelly Purcell, Kings College London.
