A journalism hopeful from India is to study at Cardiff University after competing for his place on TV.
Ayushman Jamwal, an 18-year-old from New Delhi, has enrolled on the BA Journalism, Film and Media course after beating thousands of other Indian applicants in the New Delhi Television programme Scholar Hunt: Destination UK.
The Apprentice-style reality show was broadcast on NDTV, the largest national English language channel in India with a reach of approximately 50 viewers, and Ayushman scooped the prize after completing a series of tests.
