UK network launched to help CI’s overseas students

| 28/08/2014

(CNS): The Cayman Islands UK Office along with the Department of Tourism, and the Friends of Cayman group in the UK have launched a new website and organization to support Cayman students in the UK. Officials said the new network Cayman connection UK is a medium by which students can keep connected whilst studying abroad, and a resourceful point of contact for simple queries or in the event of an emergency. Students can also become part of a smaller group of Cayman Student Ambassadors, who are the administrators of the group. These Ambassadors not only represent Cayman Connection, but the Cayman Islands at their designated Universities.

At a reception here at the National Gallery last week Ken Millwood, Cayman Connection Events and Entertainment Manager said the student ambassadors had worked hard on their first event. “We are grateful for the support we have received thus far and look forward to working together to further grow this organisation. The network is starting to feel like a family where the gravitational centre is the Caymanian spirit and strong connection with our UK brethren.”

Sponsors Mourant Ozannes, a local law firm, have also partnered with the group for their first subject specific student event, which will be hosted this October in the UK for law students within the network.

The Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce has also teamed up with the group to help the student ambassadors further develop the organisation and extend the network. Governor Helen Kilpatrick has also shown her commitment to furthering the group by confirming plans to host future networking events in Cayman at Government House.
