Can I apply for a Chevening Scholarship to study a distance learning course delivered by a UK university?

No, Chevening Scholarships are available for study in the UK only. It is also not an option for you to start your studies in your home country through distance learning and then to come to the UK to complete the course later in the academic year.

Due to the exceptional circumstances presented by COVID-19, scholars starting their courses in the 2020 academic year may be allowed to start their taught master’s degree courses through distance learning measures in situations where there are travel restrictions into the UK only.
