We welcomed a delegation from our South American partner, Universidad Chileno-Británica de Cultura (UCBC) on 3 November.
The delegates, Mrs María Cristina Brieba (Vice-Chancellor), Mr Pedro Pfeffer (President) and Mr Pablo Halpern (Vice-President), were here to sign a new student exchange agreement and discuss ways to expand links between the two institutions.
The UCBC delegates met with Professor Peter Lambert, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching), and Professor Colin Grant, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Internationalisation), together with representatives from the Department of Politics, Languages & International Studies, and the International Relations Office.
The headquarters of UCBC is located in the city of Santiago, Chile. The agreement will offer Bath students the opportunity to study and teach in Santiago, and explore the region on their days off. Professor Lambert previously spent time as an English Language Assistant in Chile and was taught by Mrs Brieba.
The delegation visit was part of a tour of their UK partner universities, which also included a meeting with the Royal Patron of UCBC HRH Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex later that week.
