Brief Description:

The programme offers awards to outstanding scholars with leadership potential from around the world to study for a master’s degree in any subject at any UK university.


Course Level:      Master’s Degree


Subject(s):            Full-time taught Master’s Degree Programme in any subject. Use the course finder to find eligible master’s degrees at every university across the UK.


Grants:                A Chevening Scholarship normally covers university tuition fees, a monthly living allowance, an economy class return airfare to the UK, and additional grants and allowances to cover essential expenditure.
