Chevening Scholarships at Queen Mary University of London are available for students from almost all nationalities except those from the EU or USA.
Application Deadline: 3rd November 2020
About the Award: Queen Mary 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 we host a large cohort of the 1900 Chevening Scholars who come to study at universities all over the UK. Generally we welcome around 90 scholars each year but there is no cap on this number.
Our 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. Chevening are publishing lots of useful tips and videos to help you with your application on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/cheveningfco/
