Chevening Scholarships

Chevening Logo

QMUL works closely with the Chevening - the UK government’s international scheme aimed at developing global leaders - to provide a large number of full scholarships for study on our one-year Masters courses.

Every year QMUL hosts a large cohort of the 1500 Chevening Scholars who come to study at universities all over the UK. In 2016-17 we have a record of 87 scholars joining QMUL from countries across the globe!

QMUL’s Chevening Scholars play an active role in our lively and diverse student community and are invited to attend our annual International Scholars Reception, as well as a variety of other scholarship events throughout the year.

The opportunity for professional and personal development away from my home country has been invaluable. The UK has long been a destination for those seeking to do this from all over the world- I am just following in their footsteps.
