UK school logo

Attending London fashion week with Vivienne Westwood? Going back to 1984 with George Orwell? Taking a leisurely walk along the River Thames with Shakespeare? Or debating with Margaret Thatcher at the House of Commons...or whatever you imagine!


Tell us: “What would you do if you could spend a day in the life of your favourite UK celebrity, icon, historical figure or fictional character?”


Five students will win the experience of a lifetime – return flights from Hong Kong to the UK, accommodation and the opportunity to take part in an exciting summer course at one of the five participating UK institutions including Chelsea Independent College, Concord College, the University of East Anglia, the University of Edinburgh and SOAS at the University of London.


Entries can be in the form of a written essay or other creative forms (website, blogs, digital videos, etc.). Essays must be written in English and must be no longer than 500 words. Digital videos must be recorded in English and must be no longer than 2 minutes. 


Deadline: 31 January 2017
