Chevening in Russia
Study in the UK on a fully funded Chevening Scholarship
Chevening is the UK government’s international scholarships programme. Funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and partner organisations, we offer awards to study in the UK for one year on a fully funded master’s degree course.
You should take independent advice about how your participation in the Chevening scheme might be perceived in your own country, including the possible reaction of your own Government as well as any related risk. You should also refrain from publicly advertising your application, including on social media.
Successful Chevening candidates come from a diverse range of countries and backgrounds, but they all demonstrate the passion, vision and skills needed to shape a better world.
There are many benefits to being selected, including fully funded tuition fees, access to some of the best quality education in the world, exclusive networking opportunities, and the chance to explore the UK’s diverse culture.
At the end of your scholarship, you’ll join our diverse community of over 55,000 global alumni. You’ll return home equipped with the knowledge and networks to bring your ideas to life and thrive in your career.
To be eligible for a Chevening Scholarship, Russian applicants should be currently resident in Russia.
Chevening Scholars from Russia are exempt from the requirement to return home for two years at the end of their award, as set out in the Terms and Conditions 13. a), b) and d).
