Applying to related courses

The Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences (MPLS) and Medical Sciences divisions offer a number of courses in closely related subject areas. This page explains how you can apply for several courses in these subject areas, but pay only one application fee.

The courses listed below participate in a scheme that allows the application fee to be waived for additional applications in the same admissions cycle to closely associated courses. If your course is not listed, there are no associated courses that you can apply to for free as part of this scheme.

After you have submitted an application to your first course, select the course title below to view the list of associated courses that you can apply to using an application fee waiver. Please note that the following conditions apply:

  • You may apply for up to two additional courses from the list of associated courses, with a maximum of one course from Group B; 
  • Your options for additional applications under the scheme will depend on which course you chose in your initial application; 
  • This application fee waiver scheme can be used in conjunction with the scheme that enables a single Physics DPhil application to be considered by multiple sub-departments. For more information about this scheme, please refer to the relevant Physics course page.

Before starting an application for an associated course, use our query form to request a fee waiver code. Remember to state clearly in your request which associated course(s) you intend to apply to.

The courses participating in the scheme for entry in 2024-25, are shown below.
