Chevening 40th Anniversary Bucket List

Class of 2023 Chevening Scholars and Fellows: Your challenge, should you choose to accept, is to complete all 40 Bucket List items before the end of your Chevening year!

Each item will help you to explore the UK and get to know your fellow Cheveners.

Throughout the year, share a photo or video of you completing each item with the hashtag #40YearsOfChevening.

And don’t forget to take your Chevening Charlie bear along too!
