The Advancement Tour to the UK is next week and the AskRIGHT team is delighted to announce that Principal of King’s College London, Professor Ed Byrne AC (formerly VC at Monash University) will welcome the Advancement Tour when it arrives at KCL on Monday morning.
“Professor Byrne has been Principal and President of King’s College since August 2014 and was previously President and Vice-Chancellor at Monash University.
