To be eligible for a Chevening scholarship applicants must:

  • Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country or territory.
  • Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your award has ended.
  • Have completed all components of an undergraduate degree that will enable you to gain entry onto a postgraduate programme at a UK university by the time you submit your application.

  • Have at least two years (equivalent to 2,800 hours) of work experience.
  • Apply to three different eligible UK university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of these choices by 13 July 2023.

MSc Artificial Intelligence
I chose to do the MSc Artificial Intelligence due to the course content and the calibre of lecturers who are involved in ground-breaking industry research. Getting the opportunity to work on an industry project for my dissertation has been a great experience.
