Georgia, Tbilisi, Feb. 15 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
Georgian Minister of Education and Science Dimitri Shashkin paid a working visit to Great Britain. He met with the president of Trinity College at Oxford University Ivor Roberts and his wife, the dean of the college Elizabeth Roberts.
The sides discussed the student exchange programs and scholarships, the Georgian Education Ministry told Trend.
Trinity College is ready to take part in exchange programs.
Oxford University is one of the best centers of knowledge in the world. Despite this, many students failed to enter the university except for some Georgian students.
The agreement envisages a beginning of cooperation between the two countries. It was formalized within Georgian Minister's visit. "This agreement is very important because our students will have the opportunity to continue their education at Oxford, and then return to Georgia and to actively participate in building the country," Shashkin said.
Trinity College is one of 35 colleges of Oxford. It was founded in 1555 by Thomas Pop.
