Brief Description: Chevening is the UK Government’s global scholarship programme that offers future leaders the unique opportunity to study in the UK. These scholarships are awarded to outstanding professionals from your country and beyond to pursue a one-year master’s degree in any subject at any UK university. Chevening provides fully-funded scholarships, leaving you free to focus on achieving your academic goals and enjoying 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, grow your network, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK. If you have ambition, leadership potential, and a strong academic background, we encourage you to apply to study in the UK, a classroom like no other.
Prior to starting your application for a Chevening Scholarship, please ensure you have the following ready:
Valid passport/national ID card
University transcripts and degree certificates (undergraduate, postgraduate)
Three different UK master's course choices
Names of two referees who know you in a professional or academic capacity
Please note that if you are shortlisted for an award, you will be required to log into the online application system and request a reference from your referees. The request will generate an email to the referees and they will need to submit the reference by Monday, 25 February 2019. If your referees do not submit by this deadline, you will be unable to proceed with an interview.
