'There are many sources of funding available to you for studying in the UK - particularly if you are a postgraduate student. The British government and other UK organisations offer a range of international student scholarships and awards.'
British Chevening Scholarships
From 2 April 2012, the British Council ceased to be the administrator of the Chevening Scholarships programme and will no longer be able to deal with Chevening enquiries.
The FCO and the Association Commonwealth Universities (ACU) have set up an email contact point for the management of 2013/14 Chevening application process.
For all enquiries please now contact firstname.lastname@example.org – the new email gateway for Chevening enquiries.
Those existing candidates who have been provisionally selected as a Chevening Scholar for the 2012/2013 academic year will be contacted by the new administrator.
For further information please refer to The Chevening Scholarships Secretariat at the ACU.
