Oxford University is inviting prospective graduate students who are European residents to apply for the Oxford-Wolfson-Marriott Graduate Scholarships for the 2018/2019 academic session.
Eight full scholarships are available for applicants who are ordinarily resident in the EEA or Switzerland and who are applying to any full- or part-time DPhil courses in the Department of Biochemistry, the Department of International Development, the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics, the Mathematical Institute, the Department of Psychiatry (with a preference for a project with an experimental or therapeutic focus within adult mental health), and the Interdisciplinary Bioscience BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership.
The scholarships are only tenable at Wolfson College. Candidates applying for an MPhil in the Faculty of Oriental Studies (specialising in Islamic Art and Architecture), or for any full- or part-time DPhil courses in the Humanities Division (specialising in Hebrew and Jewish Studies) are also eligible.
Worth of Award
- The scholarship covers course fees (at the Home/EU rate), college fees and a grant for living costs for full-time students of at least £14,553 (students on part-time courses will receive a study support grant instead).
- Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course.
- All eligible applicants will be considered for this scholarship, regardless of which college (if any) you state as your preference on the graduate application form.
- However, if there are multiple candidates of equal academic merit, preference will be given to candidates who chose Wolfson College as their preferred college on the graduate application form.
- The eligibility criteria will be applied automatically, using the details you provide in the relevant sections of the graduate application form (for example, your country of ordinary residence and your previous education institutions), to determine whether you are eligible.
- Selection is based on academic merit, unless specified otherwise.
- Some of the scholarships are only tenable at specific colleges. Unless specified otherwise, you do not need to select that college as your preference on the graduate application form. All eligible applicants will be considered, regardless of which college (if any) you state as your preference. However, successful applicants will be transferred to the relevant college in order to take up the scholarship.
- Applicants who hold deferred offers to start in 2018-19 are not eligible to be considered for these scholarships.
- Successful applicants will be transferred to Wolfson College in order to take up the scholarship.
You will be considered automatically for this scholarship if:
- You are applying to start a new graduate course;
- You submit your course application by the relevant January admissions deadline;
- You are subsequently offered a place after consideration of applications received by the deadline;
- Your application is not placed on a waiting list or held back after the January admissions deadline to be re-evaluated against applications received by the March admissions deadline; and
- You meet the eligibility criteria.

- There is no separate application process for this scholarship: to be considered, submit your application for graduate study by the relevant January deadline for your course.
