Chevening offers a unique opportunity for future leaders and influencers from all over the world to develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK.

Applications for most Chevening Awards closed on 7 November 2017 and will reopen in August 2018 for opportunities to study in the UK in 2019/2020.
