The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, visited Podar International School – a Cambridge school in Santacruz, Mumbai – on 14 September 2016 as part of his six-day visit to India. He was accompanied by the new Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education) Professor Graham Virgo and the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Institutional and International Relations, Professor Eilís Ferran.
During the school visit, the Vice-Chancellor took part in an interactive session with Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International A Level students and spoke about the University of Cambridge, studying in the UK and the move from school to university. He also met the school principal and teachers.
The Director of Podar Group of International Schools, Dr Mrs Vandana Lulla said: “The University of Cambridge's Vice-Chancellor's visit had a great impact on the students. They were inspired by his conversations on the 21st century research and education. The Vice-Chancellor was impressed with the challenging questions the students asked and he mentioned that our students are confident and motivated which speaks a lot about the leadership and faculty at Podar International School”.
Ruchira Ghosh, Regional Director South Asia, Cambridge Assessment International Education who was also present at the event commented: “Cambridge has a strong partnership with Indian educational institutions. We’re proud to have a network of over 370 schools in 24 states that is strengthened by the outstanding reputation of the University of Cambridge.”
