Chevening scholarship essay format
Hello, please I intend to apply for the Chevening Scholarship program come this September. I'm trying to draft my personal statement/essay and I believe it covers; leadership, networking, university university and course choices, and finally career plan. My question is, should the essays be written on the above segments separately which each containing 500 words or should it be one essay comprising the above segments with a 500 word count?

Those essays are written separately. Each essay has a maximum of 500 words. You are to write prompt specific responses for every topic provided. Do not write an essay that tries to cover all prompts within 1 statement. The reviewer reads the essays separately per applicant. It is important that you understand each prompt and supply the required information.
For leadership: Do this within a workplace context, not within an undergraduate context. Depict a workplace scenario where your leadership was required or came to fore because of a certain situation.
For networking: Explain the importance of the Chevening network within your current profession and how it can be useful to you. Add notes on how you plan to promote Chevening after you graduate within your country.
University and course choices: Focus on each university separately, along with its separate courses. Do not use one combined statement for the course and university choice. Indicate your first, second, and third university choices. Just discuss the universities in order of priority, You do not need to indicate your priority, second, and third choices.
For Career plan: Explain your post studies plan. How do you plan to use your knowledge in the workplace? What future career prospects do you have as a masters and Chevening graduate?
