Two young Croatians left for the UK in September to get their master’s degrees, with their one-year study funded by the UK Chevening scholarship scheme. Tomislav Korman, Head of the Croatian Government’s online communications department, and Senad Handanagić, a doctor at Varaždin’s Emergency unit, won the scholarship in 2013. Ambassador David Slinn, who hosted a pre-departure meeting at the Embassy in Zagreb, wished them luck, success and fun. David also expressed his conviction that the knowledge and skills Senad and Tomislav will gain in the UK will also benefit Croatia in the long-run.
Senad and Tomislav will now join a community of around 350 people from Croatia who have studied in the UK as Chevening scholars. They are professors, officials, lawyers, sustainable energy experts and business people.
