OCLW Postgraduate Visiting Scholarships

The Oxford Centre for Life-Writing welcomes applications from visiting doctoral students who would like to conduct their research while benefitting from the intellectual support of OCLW and Wolfson College. 

We do not provide funding (or help in searching for funding) for accommodation, travel or living expenses, or any supervision or teaching, however it is possible for visiting postgraduate scholars to make independent arrangements to join the Bodleian library, and to make contact with a potential supervisor. 

A visiting Doctoral Studentship grants the student access to the college's academic community; dining rights in college; access to Wolfson's library; membership of OCLW, and all its events, with the possibility of speaking publically about his/her research. 

Applicants must have matriculated as a doctoral student at another university, and have an appropriate visa to study in the UK. The maximum duration for a visit is one term (to coincide with up to the maximum of the ten weeks of an Oxford University term), or the Easter vacation (approximately four weeks), or the Long vacation (approximately fifteen weeks).

To apply

Send a covering letter, 2-page CV and a statement of the research you will undertake during the Postgraduate Visiting Scholarship (maximum 2 pages), details of a potential supervisor whilst in Oxford, plus a letter from that supervisor confirming their willingness to undertake supervision of the project, plus completed application form (below) to oclw@wolfson.ox.ac.uk

Mixed Circuits
Tuesday 21 January - 6:00pm to 7:15pm

Mixed Circuits are organised by the Boat Club and run every Tuesday and Thursday at 6 PM all year round in the Games Room. Free and open to all members of college, the sessions are great for rowers keeping fit in the off-season, as a supplement to regular training, or for non-rowers who want to get a bit of exercise while seeing the enthusiasm of the Boat Club first-hand. The workout consists of a few sets of “body-weight” exercises, including crunches, press-ups, squats, etc.
