Faculty Studentship Information
If you receive an offer of a place, your college will require you to complete a Financial Declaration form. This aims to ensure that you are fully aware of the expected fees and living costs associated with your chosen programme of study. See full details of fees.
The Faculty and University have a number of studentships available to fund graduate study in English. In recent years about 11 studentships a year have been offered to study on our master's programmes, and about 20 studentships a year to study on our doctoral programme. Most of these are offered to UK or EU students, but two or three studentships on both the master's programme and the doctoral programme (four to six in total) are awarded to overseas students.
The University of Oxford is a partner in the OOC AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership. Candidates who are interested in being considered for this funding are required to indicate this when applying for a place on a doctoral programme, and to upload a statement in support of their application. English also nominates candidates each year for Clarendon Scholarships (open to UK/ EU and Overseas students). Here too application is made through the central admissions process, but there is no need to submit any further information. The Humanities Division offers around 35 Clarendon scholarships a year. Smaller numbers of other scholarships are also offered. All eligible candidates are automatically considered for these scholarships.
The Faculty also offers studentships in partnership with some colleges, and makes recommendations for a number of trust-funded studentships, managed by other committees and Boards. All eligible candidates are automatically considered for these studentships, which are open to UK/ EU students only. They include:
Jeremy Griffiths Studentship
Available to candidates studying a subject related to the History of the Book before 1550 (held at St Hilda's College). Open to applicants for the MSt 650-1550 and MPhil (Medieval Studies).
Cecily Clark Studentship
Available to students of English Medieval Studies, with a preference for subjects relating to Middle English Philology.
Violet Vaughan Morgan Studentship – available to candidates studying on any of the English MSt strands.
