Other information

Eligible travel must take place during the 2019/20 academic year, or in the long vacation either side of this. Applications for travel outside of this timeframe will not be considered. 

Students are required to contact a possible supervisor at the host institution/university before submitting their application (applicants will be required to evidence this). It is expected that students will continue to be enrolled 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 or shorten the duration of the proposed travel period. Scatcherd European Scholarships may be held in conjunction with Erasmus grants or grants from other educational bodies - all other funding awards and/or pending applications must be clearly declared in the application.

Successful applicants will be required 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.
