Ahmed Wahdan (Egypt), MSc Corporate Finance:

The Chevening Scholarship has been a life-changing opportunity, enabling me to pursue my MSc in Corporate Finance at Loughborough University. It has not only alleviated financial constraints but also connected me with a diverse community of scholars worldwide. The best part of my Loughborough studies has undeniably been the amazing campus experience. The campus exudes a vibrant and inclusive atmosphere, making it a hub of learning and excitement.

Freddy Rangira-Gahaya (Rwanda), MA Global Communication and Social Change:

It is hardly possible for someone like me from a humble background to afford high education in the UK. Chevening made it possible for me to further my studies at one of the best universities in the UK, where I had an opportunity to network with a multicultural community of students, and I believe it is a huge boost for my professional development. As for Loughborough University London, it is the best place you can be. From the futuristic design and infrastructure to top notch lecturers who are also leaders in their domains, you will not find a better university.
