The group will soon depart from the island to study a one-year Masters course in their area of expertise in prestigious British universities.
The event included a presentation by Second Secretary Anthony Henderson about the Chevening Programme and general information about living in the UK, as well as a discussion with former scholars who provided useful tips and recommendations to the new students.
Antony Stokes said:
This is the largest ever number of Cubans awarded a Chevening scholarship. Each and every one I met is impressive in different ways, talented, energetic, creative, and warm-hearted. I am looking forward to hearing stories about their progress in British universities, before they come back to Cuba.
Applications for Chevening scholarships are open until 7 November 2017. www.chevening.org
