Fully-funded scholarships to undertake any master’s course at any UK university. And so much more…
Chevening Scholarships enable outstanding emerging leaders from all over the world to pursue one-year master’s degrees in the UK. Whilst there is no ‘typical’ Chevening Scholar, we are looking for the kind of people who have the passion, ideas, and influence to provide the solutions and leadership needed to create a better future.
Because these scholarships are fully-funded (flights, accommodation, and course fees are all included), you are free to focus on achieving your professional goals and maximising the experience of a lifetime. You will live and study in the UK for a year, during which time you will develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK. On completing your studies, you will leave the UK equipped with the knowledge and networks necessary to bring your own ideas to life.
This section of the website contains all of the information you need in order to successfully submit an application. We encourage you to review it fully in order to ensure that you have the best possible chance of being selected for an award.

Find a course
Trying to find the right courses for your Chevening Scholarship application? Our course finder is here to make your search easier.
Selecting the right courses at the right universities is one of the most important aspects of your application. Use this course finder tool to search for eligible master’s degree programmes at every university across the UK*.
Your Chevening application must list three courses, and they must be courses that are eligible for a Chevening Scholarship.
You will need to apply separately for your course via the university that runs the course. Your Chevening application does not constitute an application to your chosen courses.
|*The course information displayed in the finder is supplied by Postgrad Solutions. This data is regularly updated but, due to evolving course offerings at universities, it may not always be 100% accurate at the time of search. Candidates are responsible for checking that the courses they list in their application meet the criteria for Chevening funding. The Secretariat completes final checks on courses that candidates have selected following the interview period, and any courses that do not meet the criteria will be deemed ineligible. Please also check individual university websites for more information.
