The University of Westminster is proud to work with Chevening, the UK government's global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. We host on average around 30 Chevening recipients each year.

The scheme is aimed at developing global leaders and is made up of two types of award: Chevening Scholarships and Chevening Fellowships. The recipients are personally selected by British embassies and high commissions throughout the world.

This scholarship is awarded to outstanding scholars with leadership potential. Awards are typically made for a one-year Master's degree. Candidates for the scholarship come from over 110 countries worldwide. There are over 42,000 Chevening alumni around the world who together comprise an influential and highly regarded global network.

Breckett Front   My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.  Breckett Front
