Chevening

Welcome to a collection of specially selected courses for Chevening Alumni, created in partnership with The Open University. These courses will build on the formal qualifications you have obtained by refreshing your business and employability skills.

The courses are informal and accredited: you can study them at your own pace, and some carry a printable certificate of participation. All you need to do is enrol on any course that interests you, then work through the materials and complete any activities or quizzes to earn your certificate. Estimates for how long a course may take are shown on the course page. This will help you plan your progress, although you may find it takes you less or more time.

When you have completed a course and earned your certificate, post on Chevening Connect, Facebook or LinkedIn to let your peers know.

This is a pilot project, so we are keen to hear your feedback. Please email alumni@chevening.org to let us know what you think.

The pilot will run until October 2018, when it will be reviewed. Please ensure you have completed all your courses by October 2018.

If you have any difficulties in accessing or enrolling on a course, or other general queries, please contact alumni@chevening.org in the first instance.
