Get involved

Throughout your scholarship you will have access to a range of opportunities arranged for you by the Secretariat and partner organisations. 


These opportunities will complement your academic programme, and increase your exposure to UK culture, institutions, and traditions. They will also give you the chance to network with other scholars, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and partner organisations.

Events

Chevening runs an extensive events programme throughout the year to encourage you to explore the UK, to network, and enhance your academic abilities.

Internships

Chevening works with various global organisations to offer short-term internships.

These are fantastic opportunities to see how these organisations work, enhance your contacts, and expand your experience.

Internships

Volunteering

The Chevening community volunteering and outreach programme aims to support and document your engagement with your UK community throughout your time in the UK.

Mentoring

We want to link new scholars with Chevening Alumni for advice on many aspects of living and studying in the UK.

Do you have a question about your course, your future career, or simply about moving to the UK? Ask an alumnus.

Register on Chevening Connect to find alumni willing to give advice on all aspects of being a Chevener.

Please read our guidance on mentoring to learn how to get the best out of it as a mentee.
