Since 1983, Chevening has brought over 50,000 exceptional professionals from around the world to study in the UK through scholarships and fellowships funded by the UK government.

As another year passes, we bid farewell to another class of Chevening Scholars but each Chevener is unique which means, each Farewell is unique because the key element is you, our Chevening Scholars.
This time last year, 1800 scholars from around the globe were in various stages of moving to the UK. Fast forward 11 months and those same scholars are in various stages of moving back to their home countries. We asked our class of 2018 scholars, for their final scholar blog, to tell us their favourite memories from the last one year and what they will miss most.
Applications for Chevening Scholarships and some Chevening Fellowships are now open. Find out which awards are available to you, and apply!

Because of our partners, the lives of some of the most inspiring future leaders have been transformed. Chevening is about education, but also about so much more. It opens up opportunities for personal and professional growth that are out of reach to most people and enables them to fulfil their potential, irrespective of their background.
Chevening Awards are highly competitive, and to be selected for an award is a mark of potential and of prestige. When Cheveners return home at the end of their studies, the new knowledge, networks, qualifications, and confidence they bring back with them should mean they are an even greater asset to any organisation.
