Those who plan to do a masters degree in the UK can now enrol in Chevening, the UK government’s scholarship program. Students around the world have until 3 November to sign up.

The program is aimed at students from any area who want to enter universities in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales. People with a leadership profile are ideal candidates. The scholarship covers the investment to the chosen course and also includes monthly help for tickets, accommodation and other expenses for one year.

In Brazil, for over 30 years Chevening has benefited 1400 Brazilians from different regions, areas and social classes. In 2014, the program received three times more Brazilians than in 2013.

“Chevening believes in the Brazilian professional potential. We are very happy with the possibility of bringing more talent to the UK. Undoubtedly, Brazil is a major focus of the program,” says Caroline MacDonald, head of Chevening in Brazil.

Among the novelties this year is the partnership with the University of Loughborough, which will receive Brazilians for studies related to the legacy of sport. “The staging of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2016 opens doors in different areas, such as infrastructure, marketing, technology and management of large events. Definitely, the partnership with Loughborough is historic,” says MacDonald.
