Applications for 2018/2019 Chevening Scholarships are open until Tuesday, 7 November 2017 (midday UK time).
Chevening is the UK government's global scholarship programme that offers future leaders the unique opportunity to study in the UK. These scholarships are awarded to outstanding professionals from your country and beyond to pursue a one-year master’s degree in any subject at any UK university.
Chevening provides fully-funded scholarships, leaving you free to focus on achieving your professional goals and enjoying the experience of a lifetime. You will live and study in the UK for a year, during which time you will develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK.
If you have ambition, leadership potential, and a strong academic background, we encourage you to go to the UK and grow in the UK as a Chevening Scholar.
Due to unprecedented interest leading up to the deadline for the closing of applications, we recommend that all applicants submit their applications earlier than the 7 November deadline.
How to apply
Applications for 2017/2018 Chevening Scholarships are open between 12:00 BST on Monday, 7 August 2017 and 12:00 GMT on Tuesday, 7 November 2017.
Applications for Chevening Scholarships can only be submitted using the Chevening online application system, available through the red 'Apply for scholarship' button above.
Prior to starting your application for a Chevening Scholarship please ensure you have the following ready:
- Essential: Three different UK master's course choices
