Chevening Scholarships

Tuition Fees at the Home/EU rate, stipend and expenses (External Link)

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.


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 11 July 2019
  • Meet the Chevening English language requirement by 11 July 2019

    Chevening Scholars must be based in the UK. Unfortunately, Brussels and Paris programmes are not eligible.
