Deputy Head of Mission Mr David Pert with Turkmen students
Despite being one of many exhibitors at the Education exhibition that took place on 14 – 15 November 2019, the Embassy’s booth dedicated to the education opportunities in the UK was always busy with students and pupils.

Following a traditional opening ceremony and senior government officials’ visit to the exhibitors’ booths, the staff of the Embassy took every opportunity to brief the Vice Premier Mr Agamyradov and Minister of Education Mr Geldiniyazov about the opportunities that await for talented Turkmen students at the highly reputable British universities throughout the UK.
In addition to the UK government’s fully funded Chevening scholarship programme that several Turkmen students receive every year, UK universities may also become one of the key study destinations for the recipients of the scholarship awards from the government of Turkmenistan. As noted by the Vice Premier Mr Agamyradov, the number of Turkmen students going to study in the highly ranked British universities under the Turkmen government scholarship scheme may increase in the coming years.
