Special relationships

Universities Australia and its UK equivalent want their members to chum-up, agreeing to map measures for mutual recognition of qualifications and to talk about how they could work together if there is a free-trade treaty. Not that connections aren’t already close, Australian representatives at talks last week included Dawn Freshwater (VC, UWA), Andrew Vann (VCU, Charles Sturt U) and Paul Wellings (VC, UniWollongong) who all hail from the UK. One other, Eeva Leinonen  (VC, Murdoch) is Finnish born and UK educated.

Presumably all is forgotten about the Brits swanning off into the then European Community 45 years ago.
