‘In addition to an extraordinary academic opportunity, the Chevening Scholarship provided me with an exciting platform to form a network of friends from various countries, diverse cultures, and distinct backgrounds. It helps us to grow in a community and exist together, peacefully and respectfully. I’ve been lucky to make dozens of friends so far in the journey. I’ve been exploring the UK and enjoying various cuisines with them every now and then. The Chevening Scholarship has given me more than just an academic degree: it’s provided me with a life-changing experience, without any doubt!’ Umair, in the right of this photo, will be sharing his experience of being a @cheveningfco scholar at @edinburghuniversity over the next few posts.
