Chevening Scholar testimonial

""Lebani Mazhani is a Kent Chevening Scholar from Botswana and is studying a Master’s in Medical Law and Ethics.

“Kent’s programme was different to the others I found, with modules on areas such as poverty, health and social justice which really appealed to me. When I secured the scholarship, I looked at Kent’s location and was pleased to see that it was near London. I know all of the other Chevening Scholars; we are like a family.

“We’ve really bonded, and the group expands as people bring in their classmates. International students are a very diverse group and there are opportunities to network.”
