Other information

Students are required to contact a possible supervisor at the host institution/university before submitting their application. It is expected that students will continue to be registered for a degree at the University of Oxford during the period of their study abroad. Successful candidates will be required to obtain the approval of their college to study away from the University of Oxford, and, where applicable, must also obtain dispensation from residence from their faculty board.

The amount granted to successful candidates may be reduced if they obtain other grants. Charterhouse European Bursaries may be held in conjunction with Erasmus grants or grants from other educational bodies.

Successful candidates need to submit a report detailing the activities as well as a certificate of attendance (a letter from their host institution) at the end of their attachment to prove the length of stay.
