Chevening and London Metropolitan University would like to welcome applications from international (non-EU) students who are considering a full-time master's programme in the UK.

Eligibility

neligible applications will be rejected, so it is important that you check that you meet our eligibility criteria before you start your application.

To be eligible for a Chevening Scholarship you must:

  • Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country or territory.

  • Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your award has ended.

  • Have completed all components of an undergraduate degree that will enable you to gain entry onto a postgraduate programme at a UK university by the time you submit your application. This is typically equivalent to an upper second-class 2:1 honours degree in the UK but may be different depending on your course and university choice.

  • Have at least two years (equivalent to 2,800 hours) of work experience.

  • Apply to three different eligible UK university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of these choices by the deadline listed on the application timeline.

You are not eligible for a Chevening Scholarship if you:

  • Hold British or dual British citizenship (unless you are a citizen of a British Overseas Territory or hold BN(O) and are applying from Hong Kong).

  • Hold refugee status in a non-Chevening eligible country. Applicants who are citizens of a Chevening-eligible country and who hold refugee status in a Chevening-eligible country are eligible for a scholarship.

  • Are an employee, a former employee, or relative* of an employee of His Majesty’s Government, or have been within the last two years from the opening of Chevening applications  (including the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, all British Embassies/High Commissions, the Home Office, the Ministry of Defence, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Department for International Trade and the UKVI), the British Council, a sponsoring UK university, or a staff member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities.

  • Employees, former employees, or relatives* of an employee of Chevening Partner organisations are eligible to apply, but if the employment took place within the last two years, you cannot receive a Chevening Partner Award from the organisation from which you work, previously worked, or are affiliated with through relatives.

  • Have previously studied in the UK with funding from a UK Government-funded scholarship.

Having a master’s degree does not prevent you from applying for a Chevening Award to study for a second master’s degree in the UK, as long as you can clearly explain why it will help you fulfil your career plan to influence positive change in your home country.

Eligible courses

In order to be eligible, the courses you choose must be full-time, and:

  • Start in the autumn term (usually September/October)

  • Taught master’s (i.e. not research-focused MRes programmes)

  • Lead to a master’s degree qualification

  • Based in the UK

Courses cannot be:

  • Part-time

  • Distance learning

  • Less than nine months in duration

  • More than 12 months in duration

  • PhD or DPhil

  • Taught with more than one month of study outside the UK

Use our course finder to browse eligible master’s degrees at universities across the UK.

Eligible types of work experience

The types of work experience that are eligible for Chevening can include:

  • Full-time employment

  • Part-time employment

  • Voluntary work

  • Paid or unpaid internships

Work experience can be completed before, during, or after graduating from your undergraduate studies, however, any mandatory employment that counted towards your undergraduate or postgraduate course would not be eligible.

You do not need to meet the work experience requirement in one period of employment. Applicants can submit up to fifteen different employment periods in order to meet the requirement. If you have held more than fifteen positions then please enter the periods which make up the greatest number of hours worked.

Deadline to apply: 1st November 2024
