Chevening alumni

Chevening alumni form the backbone of the Chevening programme, enabling the FCO to cultivate lasting positive relationships with future leaders, influencers and decision-makers from all over the world.

Numbering 43,000 worldwide, Chevening alumni comprise an influential and highly regarded global network. They have an excellent record of rising to positions of leadership across a wide range of fields: including politics, business, the media, civil society, religion, and academia.
