The start of the school year this year is approaching and that of the following year is already in preparation in some institutions.
Many Algerians have the ambition to study abroad and have already begun their research and their student activities. Among the countries to which Algerian students turn there is England. Whether for its educational programs or for the quality of life it offers, the country is a favorite destination.
It is in this context that the British Embassy in Algiers made an announcement this Monday, August 1, 2022 in which it reveals the opening of the Chevening scholarship.
Entry dates have been set from August 2 to November 1, 2022, and will be for the 2023/2024 school year so that potential winners can study at a UK university with the aim of obtaining a Masters degree in the field they want.
Winners of this scholarship will have their study costs covered and funded by the UK government.
In the publication, UK Ambassador to Algeria Sharon Wardle claims to encourage applications “from talented Algerians who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields”.
What are the criteria to be eligible
This scholarship offers an opportunity for ambitious students, and the selection is made on the basis of several criteria.
The institution therefore specifies that “the ideal candidate does not exist”. No scale or specific admission standards have been communicated and all areas of training are accepted.
Nevertheless, some pre-requisites are necessary such as “ambition, leadership qualities and a solid university education”. The embassy also favors people with at least two years of experience.
Indeed, after their one-year training, graduates from the largest British universities will have access to the alumni network, where 50,000 leaders and innovators around the world gather, an opportunity for them to build “a solid network of references in various fields”. A website has been set up, so that interested parties can have access to the registration portal but also to the various information that could be useful: https://www.chevening.org/scholarship/algeria
What does the Chevening scholarship offer students?
The Chevening Scholarship is the UK government’s international scholarship scheme. Scholarships are offered to motivated and eligible individuals to study in the UK for one year.
The selected Masters program will therefore be fully funded and tuition fees covered. In addition, at the end of the course started, the student will join “a diversified community of more than 50,000 former students worldwide”.
This scholarship therefore remains a good opportunity for the future for Algerians who wish to go beyond the borders.
