We very much look forward to receiving your comments and participation in discussions, and we encourage open, lively debate. However, we do ask that our scholars, fellows, and alumni adhere to certain good practices and conventions of polite and constructive discourse.

The spirit

As a Chevening Awardee, you belong to a unique group of future leaders from around the world who have personally been selected by the UK government to study in the UK. As such, you also become something of an ambassador for your own country and community whilst in the UK. The spirit of Chevening is about developing bonds, intercultural understanding, and intellectual curiosity through the respectful exchange of ideas, opportunities, knowledge, and experiences.

Chevening Awardees come from all walks of life, so please be mindful of statements, comments, articles, or even jokes which may have the potential cause offence to your peers. Please conduct yourself online as you would in person – if you think something would be offensive face-to-face, it is likely that it will still be offensive online.

The terms of use outlined below form part of the terms and conditions that you agreed to abide by when you accepted your Chevening Award.
