What are Chevening Scholarships?

Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The Scholarships are awarded to outstanding scholars with leadership potential. Awards are typically for a one-year Master’s degree.

Who can apply for a Chevening Scholarship?

Applicants should be high calibre graduates with the personal, intellectual and interpersonal qualities necessary for leadership. Chevening Scholars come from 144 countries and territories worldwide (excluding the USA and the EU).

To be eligible for a Chevening Scholarship, you must:

  • Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country, and intend to return there after your studies;
  • Hold a degree that is equivalent to at least an upper second-class honours degree in the UK;
  • Demonstrate that you have achieved the Chevening minimum English language requirement;
  • Have completed at least two years’ work or equivalent experience before applying for a Chevening Scholarship;
  • Be able to obtain the correct visa, and receive an unconditional offer from a UK university;
  • Return to your home country at the end of your Scholarship.

Most Chevening Scholarships cover:

  • Tuition fees;
  • A living allowance at a set rate (for one individual);
  • An economy class return airfare to the UK;
  • Additional grants to cover essential expenditure.

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
