Studying in the United Kingdom will not only give students a thorough understanding of the subject but also analytical abilities and problem solving skills that are much prized by employers.
The chance to improve their language skills is bringing many students to this country. English is the language of commerce, of the Internet, of global communication and of medicine. We are proud that 750 million people world-wide have now learnt our language. That English is becoming a lingua franca means that students who have studied here are in demand all over the world.
As part of our plans, the flagship Chevening Scholarship Scheme now offers up to 1, 000 scholarships each year for overseas students to undertake postgraduate study or research in the United Kingdom.
Most Chevening scholarships are for one-year Masters courses, but some are for shorter specialised courses lasting up to six months. Courses include law, business administration and international relations. They allow talented graduates and young professionals to become familiar with the United Kingdom and to gain skills that will benefit their countries. British Embassies and High Commissions select candidates for the scholarships, which are offered in more than 150 countries including India, China and Brazil.
