There are more than 50,000 Chevening alumni worldwide, who make up an influential and highly respected global network. In Argentina, more than 500 people have been selected to participate in this prestigious program.

    Congratulations to them all, hope they enjoy their time in UK. It might be a chance to learn too of the importance of freedom of expression and freedom of thought, currently planned to be suppressed in their country. Worrying times for young Argentines.
