Chevening (100%)

What is the Chevening Scholarship?

UEA is pleased to partner with Chevening to award a large number of Scholarships per year.

Chevening is the UK government’s international awards scheme aimed at developing global leaders. Funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations, the recipients are personally selected by British Embassies and High Commissions throughout the world. Chevening offers a unique opportunity for future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers from all over the world to develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK. Chevening Scholarships are available to students from more than 160 countries and territories worldwide (excluding the USA and EU). More than 1,500 Scholarships are available every year.

There are a wealth of benefits to being awarded a Chevening Scholarship, including:

  • Fully covered tuition fees, set living expenses, and return flights to the UK

  • Joining over 48,000 Chevening Alumni who together form an influential and highly regarded global network
