British Embassy in Japan offers scholarships for postgrad study in the UK

Teaching-English-in-Japan-Education-Chevening" The British Embassy's Chevening scholarship scheme is now open for applications in Japan.

The prestigious scheme offers talented graduates and young professionals from Japan the chance to study for postgraduate qualifications at the UK's world leading universities.

Chevening scholarships cover the full cost of one year of postgraduate study in the UK from 2012-13, including tuition fees and a monthly stipend. Not surprisingly, competition for the scholarships is intense.

The Chevening programme has a reputation for attracting outstanding young people who have the ambition to become leaders in their chosen fields. A typical successful candidate demonstrates the potential to benefit from the scheme and use it to further develop their career.

Some 200 Japanese citizens have been supported by the Chevening scheme so far, which attracts some of the best and brightest young people from around the world. On their return to Japan, the alumni benefit from membership of the Japan Chevening Alumni Association. The association, which is only open to Chevening alumni, provides the returnees with a valuable network of contacts.
