The British University of Chevening has opened its scholarship for the academic 2018/2019, along with some of the university’s fellowships. The university is partnering up with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) which has contributed to the funding of the programmes.
Yearly, Chevening awards estimated 700 scholarships to students from 110 countries, allowing students from developing countries to access to educational institutions ranked high by international standards. Winners of Chevening scholarships predominantly enroll at the London School of Economics & Political Science, University College London, and the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh, along with other institutions.
Under the scholarship programme, successful candidates are entitled to tuition fees covered by the scholarship and a monthly stipend, as well as to travel across the United Kingdom. More benefits include the cost of one visa application and a separate travel grant to travel to Chevening events in the UK.
In order to qualify, successful applicants need to be a citizen of a Chevening-approved country. The applicants will be required to return to their country for a minimum of two years after their grant has expired. In addition, the candidate must receive an unconditional offer from one of the institutions he has applied for by 12 July 2018. In addition, all applicants must demonstrate their language proficiency meets Chevening University’s criteria, including one of the many tests available such as Academic IELTS, TOELF iBT and others.
