‘London remains a good choice for Indian students who want to work while they study’
Kevin McCarthy, currently head, Study London, London & Partners, helped set up the Study London promotional campaign in 2002 to promote London overseas as the world’s number one study destination. Originally located within London Higher, the umbrella organisation for London’s 42 universities and higher education colleges, the project moved to London & Partners in October 2011. Prior to establishing Study London, Kevin McCarthy worked at a number of higher education institutions including London Business School, Goldsmiths University of London, London South Bank University, Queen Mary University of London and the London School of Economics. In an interaction with Vikram Chaudhary of The Financial Express, McCarthy shares his thoughts on the recently-launched Student Ambassadors programme and how studying in London can make a difference to a student’s life.
