 Graduate admissions and funding

 
Graduate admissions and funding
opportunities for entry in October 2017
 
We invite applications for graduate study in Economics, Politics and International Relations, Sociology, and Social Policy. The College aims to attract applicants of the highest academic merit, irrespective of background and personal circumstances, and to provide an exceptional working environment for them. In line with this commitment, the College has further enhanced the financial support it offers to new students.
 
The following funding package applies for 2017 entry:
 
If you are admitted to Nuffield to undertake one of the courses we offer in Sociology or Social Policy (preferably DPhil or a masters course leading to a doctorate); Economics (MPhil or DPhil); or Politics or International Relations (MSc, MPhil, or DPhil), we will underwrite full funding for the duration of the fee liability of your course.
 
Nuffield also admits a small number of students in relevant interdisciplinary subjects, for example, Economic and Social History. Funding is available for those courses also, but may be less than full underwriting of fees.
 
To be eligible for funding you must apply for your course by the relevant January deadline, in accordance with the University’s graduate admissions process.
