Southasia - - BRIEFS -

UK has quadru­pled the num­ber of Chevening schol­ars from Pak­istan to of­fer more op­por­tu­ni­ties for post­grad­u­ate stud­ies at lead­ing uni­ver­si­ties in the United King­dom. In 2014, only 17 stu­dents from Pak­istan were of­fered Chevening schol­ar­ships, but this year 73 stu­dents from Pak­istan have been se­lected for the pro­gramme, mak­ing it the big­gest in­crease in the num­ber of Chevening schol­ars from any­where in the world. An in­ter­na­tional schol­ar­ship, Chevening is funded by the Bri­tish For­eign and Com­mon­wealth Of­fice. It pro­vides learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to out­stand­ing stu­dents from all over the world to de­velop aca­dem­i­cally and pro­fes­sion­ally in dif­fer­ent sub­jects such as busi­ness, good gov­er­nance, en­ergy, democ­racy, con­flict res­o­lu­tion, in­no­va­tion, pub­lic ser­vices, re­gional co-op­er­a­tion and se­cu­rity stud­ies.
