THE University of Chester has finalised an agreement to work with a Georgian university for a further five years following a successful partnership.

The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Caucasus University and the University of Chester.

The professional relationship between the two universities started several years ago with a focus on the exchange and dual degree programmes in business and law.

The Memorandum covers student exchange and dual degree programmes as well as staff exchanges, collaboration in research and the exchange of scientific materials.

It was signed between Professor Chris Pyke, associate dean and head of Chester Business School at the University of Chester and Kakha Shengelia, President of Caucasus University.

There are currently around 30 students from Georgia at Chester.
