One of the reasons why Chevening holds a well-renowned reputation is because of its rigorous selection process that almost takes up a year to complete with applications, interviews, terms and conditions, other selection stages and a lot of after selection stages too. It is highly competitive, demands one to use the full potential of their cognitive abilities as well as have a creative outlook and finalizes candidates with great ambition. Despite the strict rubrics, rather than getting stressed or loosing confidence in yourself, you should become more determined to defeat these regulations and be victorious at the top where you will have endless opportunities of success waiting for you. Moreover, it is fully funded, students are provided airfare and a monthly stipend along with accommodation costs as well. So, let us move ahead with a rigorous drive as there is no task that is impossible.

Applications for Chevening Scholarships for the year 2020/2021 are now open. The deadline for the application is 12:00 (midday) GMT on 3 November 2020.

The application process is online and completed through their web portal. All the applicants of the scholarship must also apply directly to the universities of their preference that are also offering the courses they want to study through Chevening in the UK.

The Chevening scholarship has an age limit of 25 years and requires a work experience of at least 2 years i.e. 2800 hours. 

After the initial selection process, if you are selected, then comes the interview phase. Do know that reaching to the interview phase is a great achievement. The interview time period will run from 1st March to 30th April 2021, so be available for an interview during that period possibly at a city in Britain where the British high commission has representation.
