2022 CHEVENING SCHOLARSHIP
Deadline: 1 November 2022, 2PM
Funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and partner organisations, Chevening Scholarships enable outstanding emerging leaders from all over the world to pursue one-year master’s degrees in the UK. Chevening Scholars study subjects in almost any field, and go on to implement their ideas for positive change in a range of sectors. After completing their period of study in the UK, they return home and join our global network of over 50,000 alumni.
The Chevening Programme includes a tailored engagement programme creating opportunities for scholars to network with each other as well as alumni, the FCDO, high profile speakers and partner organisations. Award recipients receive:
Payment of tuition fees
Economy travel to and from your country of residence by an approved route for you only
An arrival allowance
The cost of an entry clearance (visa) application for you only
A departure allowance
A contribution of up to £75 for TB testing, where this is required
A travel top up allowance
A monthly personal living allowance (stipend) to cover accommodation and living expenses. The monthly stipend will depend on whether you are studying inside or outside London. These rates are subject to annual review.
Please note that for MBA programs, there is a fee cap applied by the Chevening scholarship that requires you to cover any additional cost over £22,000.
To be eligible for a Chevening Scholarship you must:
Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country or territory including Eswatini
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 but may be different depending on your course and university choice.
Have at least two years (equivalent to 2,800 hours) of 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.
The Chevening English language requirement was removed in 2020. However, candidates will still need to meet all requirements from their chosen university, which may include English language requirements, and secure an unconditional offer from one of their three course choices by 13 July 2023.
Work Experience Requirements
Chevening Scholarships require that applicants have at least two years of work experience. The types of work experience that are eligible for Chevening can include:
Paid or unpaid internships
SELECTING A COURSE
Only courses that are UK-based, full-time, start in September / October 2023 (autumn term), and lead to a taught master’s qualification are eligible for a Chevening Scholarship. Courses that are eligible for this scholarship can be found here: https://www.chevening.org/scholarships/find-a-course/.
Applicants are required to select three course choices when applying for a Chevening Award. You will need to apply separately to your selected courses directly via the university. Please note that the course titles do not have to match exactly, but all three courses should be similar in content. You should select courses that reflect your current or future career goals.
HOW TO APPLY
All Chevening applications must be submitted in English through the scholarship’s online application system (OAS). This system will be used throughout the application and selection process, and you may be asked to log back in at various points during the process to receive updates on your application status, or to submit documents.
