Visit the Chevening Scholarship website for more details.

How our scholarships are awarded

Scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis and therefore candidates who apply early in the admissions round may have a greater opportunity to receive an award.


Candidates will need to demonstrate clear academic or professional merit through their MBA application form and interview process.

Applicants will be automatically considered and, in order to be eligible for a scholarship, will need to have applied for the MBA programme and have submitted all necessary documents for the assessment of their application.

Scholarship amounts

Scholarships will cover up to 50 per cent of the total tuition fees

Terms and conditions

Many employers are willing to sponsor their staff to undertake an MBA. The benefits for employers can be substantial and it’s worth discussing sponsorship with your organisation.

Sponsors can pay all your fees or just a percentage; we are happy to receive fee payments from more than one source.

Some employers aren’t able to offer financial sponsorship but can offer a wide range of other support (such as study leave or access to company resources), so it’s always worth discussing your plans with your organisation.

Career Development loans

A Professional and Career Development loan offers financial assistance while you improve your prospects.

Career Development loans are available directly via Barclays Bank and the Co-operative Bank.
