Chevening Scholarships

We are a popular destination for Chevening Scholars and we are pleased to support this scholarship programme.

Chevening Scholarships are the UK government's global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations.

The scholarships are awarded to outstanding scholars with leadership potential. Awards are typically for a one year Master’s degree at universities across the UK.

Our students have been awarded Chevening Scholarships over the years and they have shared their experiences of how it helped with their studies in the UK.

Eligibility criteria

To apply for this scholarship you must be:

  • be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country
