Posted on: July 23, 2018

On 21 June 2018, Ms. Sasha Dixon, Second Secretary, Permanent Mission of The Bahamas to the United Nations Office and other International Organizations in Geneva, completed the Oxford University Foreign Service Programme along with 18 other members of the 2017/18 class. In keeping with the truly international character of the course, students hailed from seventeen different countries, also including Australia, Bhutan, China, the Dominican Republic, Fiji, Germany, Ghana, Moldova, Russia and the United States. Ms. Dixon achieved a distinction in each component of the course and was awarded the Ralph Feltham prize for submission of the best dissertation of the year. The prize is given annually in honour of Mr. Ralph Feltham, Founding Director of Oxford University’s Foreign Service Programme. The Foreign Service Programme, designed to bring together early to mid-career diplomats for postgraduate study in International Politics, Public International law, International Trade and Finance and Diplomatic Practice, will mark the 50th anniversary of its establishment in 2019. Ms. Dixon received a Chevening Scholarship to fund her participation on the course. She therefore now joins the global alumni network of the Foreign Service Programme as well as that of some 50, 000 Chevening scholars around the world.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs congratulates Foreign Service Officer Dixon for her stellar achievement.
