About Chevening Scholarship 

Chevening scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The scholarships are awarded to outstanding scholars with leadership potential.


To be eligible for a Chevening Scholarships Award you must:

1. Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country(Nigeria inclusive)

2. Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your award has ended

3. Have an undergraduate degree that will enable you to gain entry into a postgraduate programme at a UK university. This is typically equivalent to an upper second-class 2:1 honours degree in the UK.

4. Have at least two years’ work experience (this may be up to five years for fellowship programmes, so please refer to your country page for further details)

You can’t be eligible for a Chevening Scholarships Award if you:

1. Hold British or dual British citizenship (unless you are a citizen of a British Overseas Territory or hold BN(O) and are applying from Hong Kong)

2. Are an employee, a former employee, or relative of an employee (since July 2015) of Her Majesty’s Government (including British Embassies/High Commissions, the Department for International Development, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, Department for International Trade, the Ministry of Defence and the Home Office), the British Council, or a staff member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities.

3. Employees, former employees, or relatives of an employee (since July 2015) of Chevening Partner organisations are eligible to apply, but cannot receive a Chevening/Partner Award from the organisation for which they work, previously worked, or are affiliated with through relatives.

(Note: Immediate relatives are defined as parents or step-parents, siblings or step-siblings, children or step-children, spouse, civil partner or unmarried partner (where the couple have been in a relationship akin to marriage or civil partnership for at least two years)

4. Have previously studied in the UK with funding from a UK Government-funded scholarship. However, if you have previously studied under a UK Government-funded scholarship (including Chevening), you may be eligible to apply for a Chevening Fellowship five years after completion of your initial UK Government-funded scholarship.

English Language Requirement

In order to receive a Chevening Scholarship Award, all applicants must show that they have fulfilled the Chevening English language requirement. We advise all applicants to ensure they have fulfilled the English language requirement as early as possible by either:

  • Taking an English language test
  • Claiming an exemption based on the UKVI exempt categories

If you cannot show that you have met the required English language level or cannot prove that you qualify for an exemption, your application will not be successful. English language tests You are free to take tests more than once in order to meet the Chevening English language requirement.


Please note that Chevening does not pay for costs associated with English language testing. You are to book and pay for costs associated with these tests. Chevening accepts English language tests from five providers:

  • Academic IELTS
  • Pearson PTE Academic
  • Cambridge English: Advanced (CEA)
  • Trinity ISE II (B2)

The English language test must be taken from one of these providers. If you do not already have an existing eligible test certificate, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have booked a test date so that you can get the required results.
