Chevening Scholarships enable outstanding emerging leaders from all over the world to pursue one-year master’s degrees in the UK. Whilst there is no ‘typical’ Chevening Scholar, we are looking for the kind of people who have the passion, ideas, and influence to provide the solutions and leadership needed to create a better future.
Because these scholarships are fully-funded (flights, accommodation, and course fees are all included), you are free to focus on achieving your professional goals and maximising the experience of a lifetime. You will live and study in the UK for a year, during which time you will develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK. On completing your studies, you will leave the UK equipped with the knowledge and networks necessary to bring your own ideas to life.
This section of the website contains all of the information you need in order to successfully submit an application. We encourage you to review it fully in order to ensure that you have the best possible chance of being selected for an award.
Preparation is key to giving yourself the best chance of being awarded a fully funded Chevening Scholarship to study in the UK. To help you, we’ve collated our best guidance and advice.
It will enable you to:
- Find the right courses
- Choose appropriate references
- Avoid common mistakes that other applicants make
You’ll also find our terms and conditions. If your application is successful, you’ll need to agree to these before accepting your award.
We wish you all the best of luck and can’t wait to welcome those of you who are successful to our diverse and global community!
