To be eligible for a Chevening Scholarship you must:
- Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country
- Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your scholarship has ended
- Have an undergraduate degree that will enable you to gain entry to a post-graduate programme at a UK university. This is typically equivalent to an upper second-class 2:1 honours degree in the UK
- Have at least two years’ work experience
- Apply to three different eligible UK university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of these choices by 13 July 2023
- Chevening Scholars must be based in the UK. Unfortunately, Brussels and Paris programmes are not eligible.
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 for outstanding scholars from around the world who wish to study postgraduate courses (typically a one year Master's) at universities in the UK.
The University of Kent is also generously co-funding a number of Chevening Awards available to applicants from Malaysia, Turkey and Nigeria.
Please note that Chevening scholars cannot apply for a Graduate Route Visa. By accepting a Chevening award, you agree to return home for two years at the end of your scholarship.
How to apply
