The 2014/15 UK Government Chevening Scholarship is now open for on-line applications until 15 November 2013.

The 2014/15 UK Government Chevening Scholarship, which covers the cost of one year postgraduate study in the UK, is now open for on-line applications until 15 November 2013. This is a strict deadline.

The full Chevening scholarship covers the cost of tuition fees up to £12,000, accommodation, a monthly living allowance, return air ticket, and a UK visa.

The Chevening scheme is much more than a scholarship. We are looking for the future leaders, people who will hold a position of considerable influence in the future and will help to increase relations between the UK and Vietnam. We are looking for bright, innovative and creative individuals. Competition is tough and the standard is very high but if you feel you have something to offer the relationship between Vietnam and the UK, please do apply. Please note no applications will be accepted after the deadline.

The British Embassy is committed to a policy of equality of opportunity and encourages applications for Chevening scholarships from candidates who reflect the full diversity of Vietnamese society. The Embassy welcomes applications from all provinces of Vietnam, including candidates from ethnic minority groups and people with disabilities. We will offer support for individuals with specific needs through the application process and, if successful, beyond. Applications are welcome from people who work in either the public or private sector.

Since 1993, the Chevening scholarship programme in Vietnam, funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and co-sponsors, has allowed almost 300 Vietnamese nationals to study in the UK.
