We can only accept people to study for a DPhil if they have evidence of funding for the duration of their study. On the application form you will be asked how you intend to fund your studies. If you are awaiting a decision from a possible funding body, or if such a body requires a letter of acceptance from the University then you can still apply, but any offer will be conditional on funding being secured. Please note that in order to commence your studies in October 2019, your prospective college will require you to confirm your funding arrangements by 31st July 2019.


Every year the Medical Sciences Division offers a number of fully funded 3-year DPhil studentships to outstanding applicants of any nationality. These studentships are funded by a number of organisations including the Wellcome Trust, MRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, CR-UK, British Heart Foundation, the Clarendon Fund, Oxford Colleges and a number of other charities. If successful, the fully-funded studentships will cover fees and provide a stipend at the standard Research Council rate.

Please note that the selection of highly-ranked applicants for these studentships is a competitive process across the whole Division so applicants are encouraged to consider alternative sources of funding. See the University website for information about other Graduate Scholarships.


As institutional commitment to the Centre Grant, WIN has 4 fully-funded NDCN studentships that will be awarded over the next 2 years
