This just confirms what we know already – Bristol is a great place to live and work in! In addition, a number of local restaurants have appeared in The Guardian’s “The 50 best breakfast places in the UK“.
Carl had passed his viva today, and we can now finally call him Dr Hu! Well done Carl! His external examiner was Prof. Bo Laursen, from the University of Copenhagen, and internal was Dr George Whittell.
Charl had the pleasure of visiting Malaysia for some recruitment activities (in and around Kuala Lumpur) recently.
It was a busy time, with visits to the Ministry of Education, a local matriculation college (just outside KL), as well as a British Council Recruitment fair. More photos from the school visit to appear shortly!
In order to welcome all new group members, and just to get to know each other a bit better, we went to one of our favourite restaurants again … Cosmo!
The University of Bristol has just finalised a new agreement with the China Scholarship Council (CSC) for 20 PhD students per year for the next 5 years. This is great news, and Bristol will benefit greatly from this new initiative!
Charl is currently in Beijing talking to prospective CSC PhD candidates at the International Graduate Scholarship Fair of the CSC.
