Chevening UK Government Scholarships

Closing Date
Applications for 2014/15 Chevening Scholarships will close on 15 November 2013 - remember to apply before the closing date.

Chevening Scholarships
Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and 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 universities in the UK.

The Chevening programme was established in 1983 and has developed into a prestigious international scheme. Chevening Scholars come from 118 countries worldwide (excluding the USA and the EU), and this year the Scholarships will support more than 600 individuals. There are over 42,000 Chevening alumni around the world who together comprise an influential and highly regarded global network.

The programme provides full or part funding for full-time courses at postgraduate level, normally a one-year Master’s degree, in any subject and at any UK university.

Below are three key points to remember when applying for a 2014/15 Chevening Scholarship.

English language tests
You must meet Chevening's English language requirement by 23 June 2014 at the very latest. We strongly recommend that you book an English language test as early as possible as availability can be limited.

Chevening selection criteria
You should carefully read the Chevening selection criteria, found in the 'Guidance for Applicants', and ensure that you demonstrate how you meet these criteria in your application.

Choosing a UK university and course
Information on choosing a UK university and course is available on the Chevening website. You should also look at the Education UK for useful information about studying in the UK.
