The world comes to Argyll

The Oban Times - - News -

IT IS heart­en­ing to re­port this week on the su­perb work be­ing done at the Scot­tish As­so­ci­a­tion for Ma­rine Science (SAMS) at Dun­staffnage (see above).

The fa­cil­ity is earn­ing it­self a highly en­vi­able global rep­u­ta­tion, as is ev­i­denced by the league of na­tions rep­re­sented in its stu­dent body as part of the Univer­sity of the High­lands and Is­lands.

Some 19 coun­tries have sent their bright­est young peo­ple to the Oban area to work and study.

This in­ter­na­tional bri­gade come from as dis­parate re­gions as South Amer­ica, the Caribbean, the South­ern Ocean, Asia and North Amer­ica. As we re­port, they are lov­ing be­ing here and hav­ing the time of their lives but they are also en­gaged in cut­ting- edge sci­en­tific work that will win in­ter­na­tional plau­dits.

Their pres­ence in our com­mu­ni­ties brings with it an ex­oti­cism that en­hances all our lives.

Should you come across any of the stu­dents, let them know how wel­come they are.
