Oxford scholarships A - M

Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme (CSSS)

One full scholarship is available for Indian nationals who are applying to the full-time BCL or the full-time MSc in Economics for Development.

The scholarship covers course fees, college fees and a grant for living costs of at least £12,408. Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course. The scholarship is jointly funded by the University and the UK Department for International Development. It supports students from developing Commonwealth countries who would not otherwise be able to study in the United Kingdom.

You must not be at present living or studying in a developed country and must not have undertaken studies lasting one year or more in a developed country. You must also be willing to confirm in writing that neither you, nor your family, are able to pay for you to study in the UK (you will be asked to confirm this if you are nominated for the scholarship by Oxford; you do not need to provide confirmation in advance). Additionally, you must be willing to return to your home country as soon as your award comes to an end (the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission will only consider requests to extend leave to remain in the UK post-award for those wishing to progress from master's to PhD study and strict conditions will apply). More information is available on the Commonwealth Shared Scholarships website.

To be considered for this scholarship, submit your application for graduate study by the relevant January deadline (22 January 2016). If you are nominated for this scholarship by Oxford, you will also be asked to complete an application form produced by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission.

Selection is expected to take place in April 2016. Please see the Standard scholarship selection terms for more information about the application and selection process.
