The department offers a number of fully funded studentships to outstanding applicants every year.

To be considered for full funding, candidates applying to start a course from October must submit their University application by the early January deadline (12:00 midday on 11th January 2019).

All candidates submitting applications by the early January deadline will automatically be considered for full funding from a number of sources including the MRC, the Clarendon Fund, Oxford Colleges and numerous charitable sources. Further details can be found here.

The funding will pay fees at the Home/EU or overseas fees rate and provide a stipend of at least the standard Research Council rate (currently £14,553 pa) for 3 years. 

Please note that the selection of highly-ranked applicants for these studentships is a competitive process, with some opportunities open to applicants across the whole Division; applicants are therefore also encouraged to consider alternative sources of funding such as those identified on the main University Funding site here.

These studentships are not linked to any specific projects but a list of potential projects available for research students can be found here. Individual supervisors can be contacted by email about their projects. Students are also welcome to define their own project/research proposal for an application; these projects/proposals can be sent to the supervisors(s) that you identify to ascertain if the department can accommodate such a project.

Please click through the individual links in the list below to find more detailed information about each opportunity.
