Chevening Scholarships

Funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and partner organisations, Chevening provides fully-funded scholarships, leaving you free to focus on achieving your academic goals and enjoying the experience of a lifetime. You will live and study in the UK for a year, during which time you will develop professionally and academically, grow your network, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships.

If you have ambition, leadership qualities, and a strong academic background, we encourage you to apply.

As well as the standard scholarships, we also offer a Chevening-Southampton scholarship. This is open to master's students from any eligible country who choose the University as their first choice institution.
