The University offers a variety of scholarship programmes based on academic excellence, to give the brightest candidates from around the world the opportunity to pursue graduate study.
Over 1,000 fully-funded scholarships are available for new master's and doctoral students in 2014 from the University, our colleges and supporters. A few of the most prestigious schemes are highlighted above.
Over 100 new Oxford Graduate Scholarships, supported by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and other donors, will be awarded to UK and EU postgraduate students who start their course at Oxford in 2014-15. The new scholarships will support the progression of students into a wide range of one-year, full-time and two-year, part-time master’s courses at the University of Oxford. Apply by the relevant January deadline for your course and if you get an offer of a place we will be in touch with more information.
Prospective graduates should start looking for funding as soon as they decide to apply to Oxford. Start by using the Fees, Funding and Scholarship Search tool to browse the wide range of graduate scholarships offered by the collegiate University. The results of each search, tailored to your particular programme and other information about your application, link directly to relevant scholarship webpages containing full information about eligibility and how to apply.
The Graduate Scholarships page offers further information about the different types of funding that may be available to you. Before applying for scholarships, read the eligibility criteria thoroughly and make sure you submit your application by the correct deadline.
It is important to note that most fully funded opportunities at Oxford are only available to students about to start a new course. Once you are registered/enrolled as a student, there are very few substantive scholarships available, so it is vital to explore your options early.
