The Chevening scholarships are fully-funded and among the top scholarship schemes sponsored by government of the United Kingdom through the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and other partner organisations.
This scholarship scheme is established to assist outstanding students from all over the world for their one-year Master’s Degree in any subject offered at recognised UK universities.
