Applicants are required to select three course choices when applying for a Chevening Award. This means that you will have alternative options if, for any reason, you are not offered a place on your first course option. It also provides our assessors with a clearer picture of your career goals and they may suggest your second or third course choice as a more suitable option for a Chevening Award.
Choose your three courses carefully.
You will not be able to change your course choices after submitting your application unless you are granted permission to do so at the interview stage.
You will need to apply separately to your selected courses directly via the university.
