Applications are now open for 2020/21 Chevening Scholarship and some Chevening Fellowships. Chevening offers a unique opportunity for future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers from all over the world to develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK.

Chevening Scholarships are the UK Government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The programme offers awards to outstanding scholars with leadership potential from around the world to study for a master’s degree in any subject at any UK university.

The significance of the Chevening scholarship scheme rests on its large scope – approximately 700 scholarships are awarded each year to students from more than 110 countries, allowing students from developing countries to access British tertiary education institutions, some of which are of a very high standard as determined by international rankings.

The most popular destinations for the Chevening Scholars to study in 2011 were the London School of Economics & Political Science, University College London, and the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh, University of Nottingham, University of Bath and King’s College London.

Applications for Chevening Scholarships to study in the UK will be open from 5 August 2019

 Eligibilities

  • To be eligible for a Chevening Scholarship you must:
    • Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country or territory.
    • Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your award has ended.
    • Have completed all components of an undergraduate degree that will enable you to gain entry onto a postgraduate programme at a UK university by the time you submit your application. This is typically equivalent to an upper second-class 2:1 honours degree in the UK.
    • Have at least two years of work experience.
    • Apply to three different eligible UK university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of these choices by 16 July 2020.
    • Meet the Chevening English language requirement by 16 July 2020.
  • Language Test:
    • In order to receive a Chevening Scholarship, all applicants must demonstrate that they have fulfilled Chevening’s English language requirement by 16 July 2020. We advise all applicants to ensure they have fulfilled the English language requirement as early as possible by either:
      • Taking an English language test.
      • Claiming an exemption based on the UKVI exempt categories.

If you fail to demonstrate that you have met the required English language level by 16 July 2020 or fail to prove that you qualify for an exemption, your application will not be successful.

  •  
    • Chevening accepts English language tests from five providers:
      • Academic IELTS
      • Pearson PTE Academic
      • TOEFL iBT
      • C1 Advanced (formerly Cambridge English: Advanced [CAE])
      • Trinity ISE II (B2)
    • The English language test must have been taken from one of these providers on or after 1 October 2018. If you do not already have an existing eligible test certificate, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have booked a test date so that you can obtain the required results.
    • Applicants are not permitted to take pre-sessional courses to fulfil Chevening’s English language requirement. You will be required to take one of the approved English language tests unless you fall into one of the exempt categories.
    • Applicants are not permitted to enrol on pre-sessional courses to fulfil their university’s English language requirement or any other conditions of a university offer. Any offer from a university with a requirement to undertake a pre-sessional course will be considered conditional.

    • Eligible types of work experience:
      • Full-time employment
      • Part-time employment

    • Hold refugee status in a non-Chevening eligible country. Applicants who are citizens of a Chevening-eligible country and who hold refugee status in a Chevening-eligible country are eligible for a scholarship.
    • Are an employee, a former employee, or relative* of an employee (since July 2017) of Her Majesty’s Government (including British embassies/high commissions; the Department for International Development; the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy; Department for International Trade; the Ministry of Defence; and the Home Office), or a staff member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
    • Employees, former employees, or relatives* of an employee (since July 2017) of Chevening Partner organisations are eligible to apply, but cannot receive a Chevening Partner Award from the organisation from which they work, previously worked, or are affiliated with through relatives.
