Funding Opportunities
 
Nuffield College seeks applicants of the highest academic merit, irrespective of background and personal circumstances, and aims to provide the best academic environment for their study. In line with this commitment the College offers a range of competitive funding packages. Below is a summary of funding opportunities which are likely to be available for students beginning their course of study in October 2017.
 
To be considered for any of these awards, you must submit your application for graduate study by the relevant January deadline.
 
Students who apply in this way and are offered a place with the relevant department will automatically be considered for the Clarendon and ESRC awards (provided that they meet the basic eligibility criteria) and students who are accepted by Nuffield will automatically be considered for any of the funding packages offered solely or jointly by the College.
 
There is no separate application form for the Nuffield funding packages; all you need to do is apply by the relevant January deadline.
 
Results for each scheme will normally be announced in March or April.
 
Economics
For candidates admitted to Nuffield to start in October 2017 the College will underwrite full funding (i.e. fees and living expenses) for the duration of the fee liability of their course. Candidates for both the MPhil and the DPhil in Economics will be considered for these awards. Some of these awards may be joint with the Clarendon, ESRC, and/or departmental scholarships available to Economics students.
 
Politics or International Relations
For candidates admitted to Nuffield to start in October 2017 the College will underwrite full funding (i.e. fees and living expenses) for the duration of the fee liability of their course. Candidates for the MSc, the MPhil, and the DPhil in Politics or International Relations will be considered for these awards. Some of these awards may be joint with the Clarendon, ESRC, and/or departmental scholarships available to Politics and International Relations students.
 
Sociology or Social Policy
For candidates admitted to Nuffield to start in October 2017 the College will underwrite full funding (i.e. fees and living expenses) for the duration of the fee liability of their course. Some of these awards may be joint with the Clarendon, ESRC, and/or departmental scholarships available to Sociology or Social Policy students.
 
Preference will be given to students embarking on a DPhil, but MSc/MPhil candidates who are interested in proceeding to a DPhil, after their masters degree may also be considered.
 
All disciplines
 
Oxford Adrian Swire Graduate Scholarship: this covers fees and living expenses and is available to students from Hong Kong and PR of China. Successful candidates may study any one of the courses for which Nuffield admits students.
 
Interdisciplinary courses or topics of study
One or more full or partial Nuffield Studentships (details to be confirmed).
 
 
Please note that the competition for these awards is fierce, as each year the number of applications received exceeds by far the number of awards available. Prospective students are therefore strongly advised to seek funding from other sources. For information on other awards that may be available to you, please check the University’s Fees and Funding Search Tool, as well as the relevant departmental webpages.
 
The overall cost of your graduate studies depends on the course you choose, as well as your fees status (Home/EU or Overseas). Please check the University’s fees and funding page for detailed information.
