The Chevening Scholarships

November 10, 2011

For my readers with Ukrainian, Russian, Moldavian, Azerbaijani and Belorussian IP addresses, assuming you are not all Brits hiding out in such wonderful places (and I know you are not as I have seen some of you on Facebook and VKontakte), some of you very bright young things my wish to consider the Chevening Scholarships.

If you fancy doing a post-grad study and the thought of doing it in the UK fills you with desire, then you need to get your applications submitted prior to 16th December.  You can apply here.

If you have not already done so, you will need to sort out your IELTS certification which grades you standard of English.  UK universities seem to require varying scores on this test ranging from 5.5 to 7.  Your local British Council office will know who provides any preparatory courses in your regions (I hope).

Certainly for my Ukrainian Odessa based readers I can point you in the direction of a school that does just that amongst its numerous English language based offerings.  I do not have any connection to the school in case you are wondering.

It would be such a nice thought to know that one of you dear readers manages to get such a scholarship despite such limited availability.  Depending upon where you go, we could end up being in the same alumni.

Good luck to all who decide to apply, in the meantime I return to the task of renewing my membership of Chatham House.
