Chevening Scholarships for Burmese Students


The Chevening is the flagship scholarship scheme of the British Government. The Chevening scholarship programme in Burma (Myanmar), funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, offers the opportunity for talented Burmese professionals from across the country to pursue postgraduate studies in the UK. The programme aims to encourage potential leaders and influential figures of the future to develop personally and academically and to bring benefits to Burma on their return.

2012/13 Chevening Scholarship Programme

The British Embassy is now accepting application for the 2012/13 Chevening scholarship programme. All applications must be submitted online through E-Chevening by 17 February 2012. Further details about Chevening scholarships and the application process are set out below.

What kind of courses can be studied under a Chevening scholarship?

Chevening scholarships are awarded for one year Master degrees at United Kingdom universities and other professional institutions. Chevening scholarships are not applicable for PhDs, undergraduate studies or professional courses (e.g. ACCA, RIBA, ICSA etc) nor are they awarded for studies outside the UK, for distance learning or for part-time studies.
We will prioritise applications for Masters Degrees in the following broad areas of study:
  • Human Rights
  • Political Science and Governance
  • Economics and Development
  • Environment
  • Journalism / Media
  • Public Health
  • Education
  • Conflict Resolution

What costs are covered by a Chevening scholarship?

A full scholarship will cover the cost for a UK visa, a return air ticket to the UK, all tuition fees (not exceeding £12,000 per year), and a monthly stipend and allowances. Candidates wishing to study a course with academic fees exceeding £12,000 per year should expect to part-fund their study. The scholarships do not cover costs for dependents.


Successful candidates must be:
  • Graduates with the personal, intellectual and interpersonal qualities necessary for leadership, including influencing and communication skills, networking ability, ambition; intelligence, academic potential, drive, self-management, strength of character
  • Motivated to make a career leading to a position of leadership in Burma (Myanmar) in the future
  • Committed to networking to find global solutions
  • Able to use their studies and experience in the UK to benefit themselves and their country.
Candidates must also:
Meet the academic requirements for their courses of study
  • Have an adequate standard of English to benefit from their time in the UK (most postgraduate courses require a minimum IELTS score of 6.5)
  • Be a national of a country other than the UK at the time of applying and intent to return to their country at the end of the period of study.
  • Already hold a degree of an equivalent standard to at least a good UK second-class honours degree.
  • There is no age limit for these scholarships, and we welcome applications from candidates who reflect the full diversity of Burmese society, including ethnic minority groups and people with disabilities.
Some applicants will already have a clear idea of the course and university where they wish to study but this is not a requirement. As long as the Embassy / British Council is confident that the applicant’s interests and skills are in line with objectives and that the candidates fit the criteria above, the British Council can help place successful Scholars on suitable courses. However, we suggest that candidates undertake some research about UK higher education before applying. Please visit the Education UK website for further information about studying in the UK.
Other information relevant to applications will be posted on this page and at: as well as on the Chevening Facebook page.

Application procedure 

All applications must be made on-line via E-Chevening Application System. For a step-by-step guide on eChevening, check the E-Chevening guidance here.


Shortlisted candidates will be contacted by 2 March 2012 and they will be expected to attend the interview in March 2012 (dates to be confirmed).
