UCLan held further talks with Mr Elyor Makhmudov, Chief of International Relations at the Tashkent State Institute of Oriental Studies. They have a record 40 alumni currently serving in Uzbek diplomatic missions in Asian and Middle East countries. All the students have to take three languages, and the preferred western language of choice is English, hence the interest to work with UCLan.
