Chevening Scholarships for Indonesian Students



The UK Government’s Chevening Scholarship programme is now open for applications to study in the UK for academic year 2019/2020.

Chevening is the UK’s global scholarship program which has been running for thirty years. The program offers scholarships to study for a Master’s degree in the UK, and specifically targets potential leaders and decision and opinion makers.

Chevening Scholarships are awarded to individuals with the potential to become leaders in their field and who also have strong academic backgrounds. The scholarship offers full financial support to study for any eligible master’s degree at any UK university, and enables access to a wide range of exclusive academic, professional, and cultural experiences.

There were more than 1500 scholarships on offer globally for the 2018/2019 academic year, representing a significant investment from the UK Government towards developing the leaders of tomorrow.

There are currently 46,000 Chevening alumni around the world, around 1,400 of those are  Indonesiahns.

Many Chevening awardees from Indonesia choose to study social sciences in the UK, though the ambassador added the program will try to help President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo realize his dream of reviving Indonesia’s maritime industry.

“This is one of the Indonesian government’s priority programs. We will help by offering scholarships in maritime studies,” Malik said.

In order to receive a Chevening Award, all applicants must demonstrate that they have fulfilled the Chevening English language requirement by 12 July 2018. We advise all applicants to ensure they have fulfilled the English language requirement as early as possible by either:

  • Taking an English language test
  • Claiming an exemption based on the UKVI exempt categories

If you fail to demonstrate that you have met the required English language level by 12 July 2018 or fail to prove that you qualify for an exemption, your application will not be successful.

English language tests

You are free to take tests more than once in order to meet the Chevening English language requirement. Please note that Chevening does not pay for costs associated with English language testing. You are responsible for booking and paying for costs associated with these tests.

Chevening accepts English language tests from five providers:

  • Academic IELTS
  • Pearson PTE Academic
  • C1 Advanced (formerly Cambridge English: Advanced [CAE])
  • Trinity ISE II (B2)

The English language test must be taken from one of these providers on or after 1 October 2016. If you do not already have an existing eligible test certificate, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have booked a test date so that you can obtain the required results.

Applicants are not permitted to take pre-sessional courses to fulfil the Chevening English language requirement. You will be required to take one of the approved English language tests unless you fall into one of the exempt categories.

Applicants are not permitted to enrol on pre-sessional courses to fulfil their university’s English language requirement or any other conditions of a university offer. Any offer from a university with a requirement to undertake a pre-sessional course will be considered conditional.
