Competition for scholarships and grants to study in the UK is extremely competitive and there are usually strict requirements. You should check carefully that you are eligible to apply for a particular scholarship before making an application, as most of the schemes are restricted to certain nationalities and/or courses. We also advise you to start looking for funding as soon as you have decided to apply to Oxford, if not before. Your potential supervisor may also be able to offer help and advice on funding your DPhil.

To be considered for funding, you must submit your University application(s) for the programme(s) you wish to be considered for, by the early January 2017 deadline.

If you are made an offer then you will automatically be considered for funding from a number of sources including the Wellcome Trust, MRC, BBSRC, CR-UK, ESRC, British Heart Foundation, the Clarendon Fund, Oxford Colleges and numerous charitable sources. 

Medical Science Division Graduate School Studentship Competition 2017

The Department of Experimental Psychology can nominate suitable applicants for the Medical Sciences Graduate School Studentship Competition. 

Applicants will be notified if you have been nominated for this funding when they receive an initial conditional offer.

Funding for your graduate studies

The University is committed to providing a wide range of funding opportunities and, every year, there are hundreds of scholarships available to applicants for graduate study.

How to search for Potential Funding

The Funding Search will help to determine which scholarships, students or awards for which you may be eligible to apply.

If you are an international student, you should also contact the Ministry of Education or Education Department in your own country for information on national aid schemes, as well as your nearest British Council Office for advice on opportunities and funding for studying abroad. 

Applicants who have already succeeded in finding funding to come to Oxford should be aware that the this does not automatically guarantee a place on our programmes of study. We will still assess your application along with all the other applications we receive.
