Tripoli, 9 September 2013:
The Chevening programme, the UK government’s global scholarship scheme, is now offering Libyans the chance to study for . . .[restrict]a Masters degree at a leading British university for the academic year 2014 to 2015.
The Chevening scholarships offer financial support to “potential future leaders, decision-makers and opinion formers.” Applications will be accepted for a wide range of subjects, including public administration, public financial management, human rights, gender issues and entrepreneurship.
The award covers fees and living expenses, as well as travel expenses to and from the UK. Potential students should research courses and universities and, in their applications, show why they believe it is the right course for them.
Applicants must have, as a minimum, an equivalent of an upper second-class honours degree in the UK and two years work experience. A very good level of English is also required, proven by an IELTS (International English Language Testing System) score of 6.5 or above. The deadline for applications is 15 November 2013.
On 18 August, six Libyan nationals were awarded Chevening scholarships for the academic year 2013 to 2014 at a reception held by the British Ambassador to Libya, Michael Aron.
