THE University of Portsmouth has appointed its first full-time business development consultant based in India.

Ashish Jaiswar has been employed by the university’s International Office and Portsmouth Business School to help support those considering studying in the UK.

His work will also open new doors to the university’s business and corporate training experts to work with multinational companies in India.

Ashish will be based in Mumbai but will travel all over the sub-continent.

He said: ‘This is a brilliant opportunity – I am really excited and looking forward to working for the University of Portsmouth.

‘Studying abroad is a lifetime experience – it’s about experiencing the different culture and learning new skills and I believe in Portsmouth you get it all.’

Ashish has worked in the pharmaceutical sector in the UK and since 2010 has worked in the education sector in India, focusing on helping Indian students wanting to study abroad.
