What You Need To Do Before Applying For A Chevening Scholarship Online

Below are some tips and advice for applicants when using the online application system:

  • Use the Google Chrome web browser, which is recommended for the best experience.
  • When completing your application form, work in a full-size window. This will make the application form easier to read in its original format.
  • Don’t use your browser’s ‘back’ and ‘forward’ buttons. This will take you out of the system and lose all unsaved work. Navigate through the pages of the application form by using the menu links in the form.
  • Remember your username and password. This saves time when you want to log back into the online application system.
  • Enter information accurately, especially your contact details. Please ensure that you enter a valid email address. If it changes after you have submitted it, please ensure you update it in your application; otherwise, you may miss important updates from the Chevening Secretariat. Also, if you provide a second email address, please ensure it is valid and different from your first one.
  • You can preview all sections of the application form at the start of your session and before you start to complete it to familiarise yourself with what is required.
  • Consider preparing your answers offline. The application form may take some time to complete, so you may wish to prepare your answers offline and then paste your answers into the online form where appropriate. This is particularly relevant if you use a public computer, like in an internet cafe.
  • Application questions have word counts. In the application form, you are required to answer a set of questions. There is a minimum word count of 100 words per answer and a maximum of 500 words per answer, so please ensure you meet these requirements. Answers that are less than 100 words will not be considered.
  • Save as you go! There is no automatic save function on the system, and each session will close after 60 minutes, even if you are still actively editing the form.
  • You do not have to complete the form in one session. Always remember to save your work. Use the ‘Logout’ button (top right corner of the page) and keep a note of your username and password so that you can come back and finish off your application later. You will also be able to access your application via a link you will receive in an email.
  • Do not plagiarise. If content from other sources is used to answer the application questions, they will be considered plagiarised, and your application will not be passed on to the reading committee. We therefore strongly encourage you to thoroughly check your answers, ensuring they are original and not copied from other sources.
  • Please apply in English. Applications must be submitted in English. Any application not submitted in English will be deemed ineligible.
  • Check the size and format of the files you intend to upload and ensure they meet the requirement. The online system will only accept PDF documents no larger than 5 MB. Please ensure that the filename length does not exceed 50 characters.
  • Only submit your application once you’re completely satisfied with it. When you are satisfied with your application, click the ‘Submit button. Please note that once you have done this, you may not modify your application except for the contact details section.
  • Remember, you can only submit one application. We will only accept your first application. To withdraw from the process, you will be asked to provide a reason before the withdrawal is final. If you choose to withdraw your application, you will not be able to start another application until applications open again.

What You Need To Know About Chevening Scholarship Interviews

If you are shortlisted to interview for a Chevening Award, you are invited to attend an interview in the city where the British Embassy or High Commission has representation.

The global interview period for 2025 Chevening Scholarships will run from 1 March to 30 April 2025. Interviews for fellowships may take place at different times. Please refer to your country page for further details.

Booking your interview

You will receive an email with instructions on how to book your interview. Interview slots are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

So, we suggest that you book your slot as soon as possible. Once you have scheduled your interview, you will receive a booking confirmation email, and your slot cannot be changed.

Applicants must attend face-to-face interviews in the country to which they have applied and be prepared to travel to the interview in the first instance.

Only in exceptional circumstances are Skype interviews permitted. This is usually where security restrictions prevent applicants from traveling to the country they applied to or where there is no British Embassy or High Commission.

Such instances are considered case-by-case, and a decision is made following consultation with the British Embassy or High Commission.

Also, you will be informed in your invitation email if your interview can be conducted via Skype.

All applicants will be informed of the outcome of their interview after the global interview period. Please do not contact your local British Embassy or High Commission, as updates on the status of your application cannot be provided before 30 April.

Applicants should not wait for the outcome of their interview to apply for their university courses and should apply for all three courses as early as possible. Also, any unconditional offers received should be uploaded to the online application system immediately.
