British Embassy offers scholarships for Koreans

The Chevening scholarship scheme is now accepting applications at the British Embassy in South Korea.

The prestigious scheme offers talented graduates and young professionals the chance to study for postgraduate qualifications at universities in the United Kingdom.

The Chevening scholarships cover the full cost of one year of postgraduate study in the United Kingdom from 2011-2012.

Over 800 Koreans have been supported by the Chevening scheme so far, which attracts some of the best and brightest young people from around the world.

On their return to Korea, the alumni benefits from membership of the Korean Association of Chevening Alumni.

The association, which is only open to Chevening alumni, provides the returnees with a valuable network of contacts.

The scholarship will not fund English language courses, such as TEFL but will support a wide range of fields such as studies in politics; international affairs; law fields including human rights and international law; climate change and energy; development studies; public administration; corporate governance and fighting corruption; finance and economics; science and media studies including journalism, new media and mass communications.

Applications for the scheme must be submitted online by March 4. Further information on how to apply will be posted at
