Outgoing Prime Minister Iveta Radičová has been offered the opportunity to teach some courses at Oxford University where she plans to spend at least one semester, the Plus Jeden Deň daily reported.

“It is a kind of offer that cannot be rejected, also from the point of view of the prestige of Slovakia,” Radičová said, as quoted by Plus Jeden Deň, adding that it would be the first time when a Slovak name would appear on the memorial tablet of the university.

Radičová admitted that she was pleased with the possibility to teach at what she called the fifth most prestigious university in the world. She could not say how long she will stay in the United Kingdom but said she hopes she will teach courses for at least one semester.
