Admissions process (graduate)

How to apply

Applicants must apply using the Oxford Graduate Application form. All English Graduate programmes use the University’s early January deadline (8 January 2021). Regardless of programme, only applications received in full, including all paperwork for particular funding schemes, by 12 noon (midday) on 8 January 2021 will be included in funding considerations.

We strongly recommend that you submit your application well in advance of the deadline. Only full applications will be considered, therefore please ensure that we have received all required elements of the application by the deadline. This includes references, so apply before the deadline, and contact your referees well in advance.

Please note that the English Faculty does not use the November deadline and so any applications submitted before this date will be considered along with those submitted for the January deadline.
