How to apply
The main closing date for ALL programmes of study and studentship opportunities is NOON on January 8th 2018.
Before completing the application form you are advised to read the details published on the University of Oxford Graduate Studies prospectus website. This website will give you information about fees, courses and Colleges. There is also a link from this site to the online application site and for you to download hard copies of the application form. Please note that we prefer online applications.
Unsuccessful applications for the 4 year Wellcome Trust studentships will also be considered for the one year MSc in Neuroscience course, unless they clearly express a wish NOT to be considered for the MSc in Neuroscience in their personal statement.
Please read the Application Guide before completing the application form. We recommend online applications if at all possible. There is no need to complete the section on Study Plans/Research Proposal but you should write a brief statement (maximum 1000 words) of your reasons for wanting to do this particular course. You need to include an up-to-date curriculum vitae (including your e-mail address, where appropriate) and academic transcripts. Applications should be sent to Graduate Admissions Office, University of Oxford, Wellington Square, Oxford. Applicants are requested to also ask three academic referees to write, in confidence. With paper applications, it is recommended that references be sent to you so that a completed application may be submitted. If this is not possible, referees should send their references letters directly to the address above BEFORE the closing date.
