The internet is a great resource to learn and connect. There are, however, a minority that use it for cyber-crime, bullying, and harassment. We share our advice for keeping the Chevening community safe and secure online, as well as where to get support if things do go wrong.
As a Chevening Scholar, there are certain training courses you need to complete.
As part of your induction process, you are expected to complete the training below.
If you have any issues, please email [email protected].
