This year the UK and Falkland Islands will mark the 40th anniversary of the liberation of the Falkland Islands. As part of the anniversary, the Falkland Islands Government is offering eight lucky UK students the opportunity of a lifetime – an all-expenses-paid visit to the Falkland Islands in February 2023, where they will experience for themselves the Falkland Islands’ culture, history, and extraordinary natural environment.
UK universities have received a record number of applications from China, which is helping to compensate financially for the drop in EU students, because of Brexit. EU applications fell 43% to 28,400 while from China the number is 28,490, more than double in four years, according to UK universities admission service, UCAS.
Deputy Representative at the Falkland Islands Government office in London, Michael Betts and Public Relations Officer Matt Ware, welcomed five students from Chichester College and three from Peter Symonds College for a day visit to London on Sunday 29th April.
