Argentine Chevening scholars

Every year, the Secretariat organises a Farewell event in London for Chevening Scholars. This is the end-of-year event and a chance for scholars to say goodbye to one another, look back on a year of study, achievements and cultural activities in the UK, and also to open up new opportunities as the scholars become part of the global Chevening Alumni network.

This year the event was held online on August 20 and 21. The Secretariat worked really hard to ensure that the 2019/20 cohort of scholars received an excellent send-off as they ended their award year, despite the circumstances of the past 5 months. They came up with a truly innovative, modern and celebratory package to match the usual face to face Farewell event! The event took place on an exclusive Chevening island powered by the platform VirBELA. Scholars were able to interact in real time as avatars, while enjoying a programme of specially curated speeches and entertainment.

The event featured inspirational keynote speakers, TED-style talks, networking opportunities, regional networking events, a Chevening choir and other fun activities.
