Scholars on a part-time course receive a study support grant to help cover their non-fee costs.  Awards are made for the full duration of fee liability (previous Oxford students are advised to check the University's Fees and Funding pages for exceptions due to prior study).

Residence criteria

Applicants from all countries are eligible.

The scholarship may be awarded either in conjunction with Research Council or Clarendon funding

How to apply

Applications should be made by the January deadline for your chosen course. The successful scholar will become a member of Wolfson College.
