Chevening Scholarships Videos

Since 1983, Chevening has brought over 50,000 exceptional professionals from around the world to study in the UK through scholarships and fellowships funded by the UK government. This unique opportunity has helped to elevate careers, transform communities, shift and deepen perspectives, and build intercontinental bridges. The Syrian Association worked on a series of 10 videos to support students applying as part of Tariqi (May way) project. 

Said Scholarships Videos

The Saïd Foundation Scholarships Programme aims to promote education and development in the Middle East by providing educational and training opportunities to outstanding individuals who demonstrate the potential to become leaders and innovators of change. The scholarships help career development and enable individuals to achieve impact in their professional fields and bring benefits to others in their countries of origin. The Syrian Association worked on a series of 10 videos to support students applying as part of Tariqi (May way) project. 

Personal Statement/Motivation Letter Videos

Understanding how to write a personal statement is an essential step towards accessing higher education or applying for scholarships. However, this could be a challenging task for students who are not familiar with it.  The Syrian Association worked on a series of 3 videos to support students writing their personal statement as part of Tariqi (May way) project. 

 

Applying to UK Universities

Applying to UK universities requires understanding how, when and where to apply. It is a straightforward process, however, with so many details to pay attention to. The Syrian Association worked on a series of 3 videos to support students to apply to UK universities as part of Tariqi (May way) project. 

 

Student Manual in the UK

Studying in the UK can be one of the most important steps and fruitful experiences in a student’s academic journey. Nevertheless, it can be a very difficult process for many. 

Amongst the difficulties are the differences in the educational system and lifestyle as well as the possible lack of information, which can lead to making wrong decisions and wasting time and effort instead of enjoying this important journey. Therefore, 15 volunteers from the Syrian Association, who have studied in the UK, have written this guide to support students in their academic journey in the UK.

The manual is currently being written. We are expecting to finish the manual in June 2020. Kindly visit around this time.
