DEADLINE – January 13, 2019
Oxford University offers Reach Oxford Scholarship for Undergraduates to learn any of the courses in the UK except medicine. A number of Reach Oxford scholarships are offered to students from low-income countries who, for political or financial reasons, or because suitable educational facilities do not exist, cannot study for a degree in their own countries.
The University of Oxford is a collegiate research university located in Oxford, England, United Kingdom.
The University is unable to consider any scholarship applications from students who have not been offered a place at Oxford. The University is not responsible for the content of external sites advertising the scheme and would encourage applicants to read the following details to check their eligibility.
Applicants should be intending to return to their country of ordinary residence following their studies. Priority will be given to students who have not studied at the undergraduate level before.
Oxford has a distinctive collegiate structure. Students and academics benefit from belonging both to the University, a large, internationally-renowned institution, and to a college or hall, a small, interdisciplinary academic community.
The University is committed to ensuring that our undergraduate admissions processes identify students with outstanding academic potential and the ability to benefit from an Oxford course whatever their background.
The University of Oxford undertakes a wide range of activities to inform, attract, and support the ablest candidates from all socio-economic, cultural and geographical backgrounds. They know that their main challenges lie in encouraging students from under-represented groups to apply to Oxford and in helping them to make competitive applications. As a result, their outreach activity has become increasingly targeted at those groups that are under-represented in higher education in general and the University of Oxford in particular.
Oxford aims to deliver an exceptional education, to carry out world-leading research, and to make significant contributions to society – locally, nationally, and internationally. Their extensive and ever-expanding global links have been developed to serve these principles.
