The Scholarships not only offer financial support to study for a Master’s degree at the UK’s leading universities, but the opportunity to become part of an influential and highly regarded global network.
We aim to attract talented professionals who are potential future leaders, decision-makers and opinion formers. We accept applications from a wide range of subject areas, however, we particularly welcome applications in the following fields:
  • Climate change and sustainable development
  • Human rights
  • Foreign & Security Policy
  • Good governance
  • Business & Islamic Finance
  • Science & Engineering, Cyber security
  • Media and Communications
Last year, following a highly competitive process, 19 Scholars were selected from Malaysia to study in the UK. You can find out more about the experiences of our Malaysian Chevening Scholars on the Scholar Profiles page of this website.
A Chevening Scholarship in Malaysia includes: a monthly stipend, travel to and from your country via an approved route, an arrival and excess baggage allowance, a thesis or dissertation grant, the cost of an entry clearance visa and full tuition fees. Please note that a global tuition fee cap of £12,000 will apply for MBA courses, and sucessful scholars wishing to study an MBA will be expected to fund the remainder of the tuition fee costs.

How to Apply

Before applying
  • Sign up for alerts about Chevening Scholarships in Malaysia by clicking on ‘Register’.
  • Read the Guidance for Applicants. Ensure that you meet the Chevening eligibility criteria and consider how you can demonstrate that you meet the Chevening selection criteria in your application.
  • All applicants will need to meet our minimum English language requirement by 23 June and further details on how you can fulfil this are available in the Guidance for Applicants.
  • If you are required to take an English language test and do not have a valid English language certificate then please consider booking an English language test date now.
  • Research which UK universities/courses you wish to attend as you must include three of these on your application (in order of preference) and demonstrate why you believe these are the right courses for your career. You should apply to your chosen universities at the same time as submitting your application for a Chevening Scholarship.
  • Research the English language requirements for your chosen courses – they are almost certain to have higher requirements than the minimum requirements for applying for a Chevening Scholarship. Plan how you are going to meet those requirements.
  • Think about who you will nominate as referees on your application. You are required to nominate two referees.
