Chevening Scholarships are now open for applications for masters by coursework postgraduate study in the UK starting in September 2017. The normal requirement is the achievement of an upper second class bachelor degree (called a “2:1” in the UK system and equivalent to an overall Distinction in this part of the world) + at least two years working experience.
In practice, a DWU applicant will need a local postgraduate qualification of some kind. Unlike the case for applicants for Australia Awards, it will be necessary to pass an IELTS test with a score of 5.5. or higher.
Consult the web site for the detailed eligibility criteria.
The Scholarships cover all costs, including travel to and from the UK, for a period of 12 months.
Deadline for application this year is 8 November 2016.
