Chevening Scholarships to study in UK

If you want to pursue your master’s degree in the United Kingdom, then you can apply for Chevening Scholarships.

There is no upper age limit to obtain these scholarships.

Applications are invited from the eligible candidates and the last date to apply is November 5, 2019.

The selected candidates for this scholarship must return to their home country after the completion of their award.


Graduates who have two years of work experience can apply for this. Work experience of two years is 2,800 hours. This can be obtained either from full-time employment or part-time employment. Voluntary work and paid or unpaid internships would also be considered for work experience.

They must apply to three different eligible university courses in the UK and should have received an unconditional offer from one of them by 16 July 2020.

They also have to obtain English language eligibility by the said time by clearing any of the following tests with the prescribed scores.

The English tests include:

  • Academic IELTS
  • Pearson PTE Academic
  • TOEFL iBT
  • C1 Advanced (formerly Cambridge English: Advanced [CAE])
  • Trinity ISE II (B2)

Chevening Scholarship normally includes the following:

  • Payment of tuition fees which is capped at £18,000
  • Economy travel to and from your country by an approved route to the applicant only
  • Arrival and departure allowances
  • Visa application cost for the applicant
  • Travel top-up allowance
  • Medical tests for TB up to £75
  • Monthly personal living allowance including accommodation and living expenses

The applicant should not have any other offer for funding from other scholarships. He/she should reveal in the application form clearly if he/she has applied for other scholarships or awards.

However, in certain cases, the applicant would be allowed to seek an opportunity to undertake UK-based employment or be in receipt of additional funding from within the UK or from abroad.

Yet, the extra income should not be an excess of £3,000 in 12 months so that there won’t be any deduction in the scholarship. You can also get more than that subject to a partial deduction in the scholarship.
