“The Chevening Programme gave me a second chance for getting a Degree.  I finished school after my GCSEs and never thought I’d ever be able to study fulltime again.  Chevening funded my Masters course and provided a monthly living grant which enabled me to commit fully to my studies and complete my MBA in just 12 months.  Being back in a classroom and studying alongside other adults from places like Mexico and Russia was daunting initially but concluded as an enriching and invaluable experience that you would never get from distance-learning.” – Tara Wortley, St Helena Chevening Scholar (2013)
