I feel greatly honoured to be awarded the Chevening Scholarship and to study International Relations at Durham University, one of the most prestigious universities in UK. It’s an invaluable opportunity for me to develop my professional and academic skills, which will no doubt benefit my career as a journalist in the future.Xin Chen, MA International Relations (East Asia)
