The Russell group is studying the possibility of integrating the program from Kira Rudik's project Graduate and Return

During a working trip to London, the leader of the Golos party, ALDE vice-president Kira Rudik agreed on the long-term cooperation with the Russell Group of universities. The British are currently studying the possibility of integrating the Graduate and Return program into their scholarship system.

The Russell Group is an association of 24 of the most prestigious universities in Great Britain, the local analogue of the American Ivy League. The Russell Group accounts for 2/3 of all research grants and research contract funding in the UK and 56% of all PhDs awarded.

«Now we have a communication channel with the most influential group of British universities. Currently representatives of the Russell Group are studying the possibilities of the Graduate and Return program. And although at the moment all scholarship programs for Ukrainian students are full, together we will look for opportunities for the practical implementation of the Ukrainian-British twinning in education»,  — summed up Kira Rudik.

Graduate and Return is a project to provide free international education to Ukrainian students, which is overseen by the leader of Golos. Thanks to agreements with 100 of the best international universities, Ukrainians will get a chance for education free of charge and to use new knowledge to rebuild Ukraine after their return.
