Kawsar and Sarwar Zaman, aged 18, were both among a hundred British students picked for the Prime Minister's Global Fellowship.

The six-week programme gives college leavers the chance to experience life, culture, education and business in an emerging global economy.

Kawsar, of Bethnal Green, is currently in India while Sarwar, who studied at Tower Hamlets College, has gone to China.

On their return they will be meeting the PM at a Downing Street reception.

They will also be talking to pupils in schools and colleges in Tower Hamlets about globalization.
