As a condition of your offer, your college will require proof that you can pay the necessary fees and support yourself for the duration of the course. For full details of fees please see here.
To be considered for University or Faculty studentships you must apply through the university admissions process by the January deadline of 18 January 2013.
The Faculty has a small number of studentships available to fund graduate study in English. Studentships include Faculty/college studentships (which are offered across all of our M.St. courses and some doctoral research areas) as well as a number of trust-funded studentships, managed by other committees/Boards to whom the Faculty can make recommendations, and which have specific criteria. These include:
The Oxford-Robin Geffen Keble Graduate Scholarship in Early Modern English Literature - available to candidates for the MSt 1550-1700 (held at Keble College).
Jeremy Griffiths Studentship – available to candidates studying a subject related to the History of the Book before 1550 (held at St Hilda's College). Open to applicants for the MSt 650-1550 and MPhil (Medieval Studies).
Cecily Clarke Studentship - available to students of English Medieval Studies, with a preference to subjects relating to Middle English Philology.
E.K. Chambers Studentship - available to candidates with good classical attainments (Classics 'A' Levels) who has graduated from a subject other than single honours English (held at either Somerville or Corpus Christi College).
Violet Vaughan Morgan Studentship – available to candidates studying a subject relating to world literatures in English.
News International Scholarships – available to candidates for the MSt in English Language.
All candidates applying for our graduate courses are automatically considered for these various awards and should NOT submit a separate application. Successful candidates will be informed at the point of an offer of a place.
The majority of the studentships are for M.St./M.Phil. applicants, although there is some funding for D.Phil./PRS applicants. The studentships generally include a maintenance grant equivalent to the AHRC grant and full university /college fees.
The AHRC grant application process (for Home/EU students) will be managed by the University, so there is no need for a separate application to the AHRC. English has a block grant allocation of doctoral and master’s awards from the AHRC. You must ensure that you complete the relevant section on the application form to ensure that you are considered for AHRC funding.
English also nominates candidates each year for Clarendon funding. Here too application is made through the central admissions process and candidates must complete the relevant section on the application form.
