Ten Chevening Alumni have been selected to do placements in different departments of the BBC World Service, a highly respected British institution, over a period of three months.

We are sharing their stories, thoughts, and videos from their time at the World Service through our rolling #MyCheveningJourno blog.

We'll be posting regularly on this page as new content comes in from our talented team of journalistic alumni, so check back again soon for more! 

More information on the placements can be found here.
