Accompanied by Dr Sharan Sidhu, Reader at the Institute of Dentistry, some 20 students met Ms Foo at the High Commission in Belgravia for tea.

All the students are members of the Queen Mary Singapore Society.

Dr Sidhu explained: “As I’m from Singapore, I was delighted to be able to arrange a visit for our young people from Singapore at Queen Mary.”

Most of the students who attended are studying medicine or dentistry but there were a few from other faculties as well.

Dr Sidhu said: “The High Commissioner encouraged the students to explore the opportunities open to them – both at Queen Mary and in London. She also stressed the importance of being a global citizen in today’s world and praised the ethos of diversity and engagement with the local community here at Queen Mary.”
