Chevening Scholarships

Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The programme makes awards to outstanding scholars with leadership potential from around the world to study postgraduate courses at UK universities.

Chevening scholarships are open to applicants from over 160 countries and territories around the world, looking to study an eligible one year taught master’s degree at a UK institution. To apply for a Chevening scholarship you must have:

  • An undergraduate degree
  • At least two years' work experience (including voluntary experience)
  • Leadership skills such as excellent communication skills, a positive attitude, and the sheer determination to achieve your goals

How to apply

You'll need to apply for both a full time master's degree and a Chevening Scholarship. We recommend applying for your chosen courses of study before or at the same time as applying for a Chevening Scholarship.

Applications for Chevening Scholarships open on 3 August until 2 November 2021.

Courses will begin in September 2022.
