Eligible types of work experience
The types of work experience that are eligible includes:
• Full-time employment
• Part-time employment
• Voluntary work
• Paid or unpaid internships
Work experience can be completed before, during, or after graduating from your undergraduate studies, however, any mandatory employment that counted towards your undergraduate or postgraduate course would not be eligible.
You do not need to meet the work experience requirement in one period of employment. Applicants can submit up to ten different employment periods to meet the requirement. If you have held more than ten positions, please enter the periods that make up the greatest number of hours worked.
If you are currently employed, it is not required that you resign from your position. You are advised to discuss your application with your employer and it is your responsibility to ensure that they will release you if you are selected for a Scholarship. You can refer them to the employer’s page on our website. The British embassy/high commission or the Secretariat cannot intervene in this.
How to calculate your work experience
Your entries will be calculated automatically by multiplying the number of weeks worked by the number of hours worked per week. For this calculation, a working week comprises 35-60 hours and a working year comprises 40-50 weeks. Anything that exceeds the upper limit for full-time employment will be deemed ineligible.
The minimum number of hours an applicant must have before applying for a Chevening Scholarship is two years’ work experience = 2,800 hours
If you have worked part-time, the minimum requirement will have been accumulated over a longer period.
