Admissions Procedure and Entry Requirements

For all graduate courses in the Faculty of Philosophy, applications including all supporting material must be submitted by the closing date, for admission in the following October.  Applicants are not normally interviewed and late applications will not be considered.

The application cycle for entry in October 2017 is now closed.  An Open Day will be held on Wednesday 15 March 2017 for all successful applicants who are offered a place on any Faculty of Philosophy graduate course for entry in October 2017.

The online application form along with all the information you will need to make your application is available from the Applying to Oxford website.

Candidates must be accepted by the Philosophy Graduate Studies Committee (“PGSC”) and then by a college.  You can state a college preference on your application form or, if you have no particular preference, the Graduate Admissions system will assign a college to you depending on college availability.  Stating a college preference or letting the system assign you a college will not affect how we assess your application.  It is not necessary to apply to the college of a particular academic by whom you hope to be supervised.  Your supervisor will be appointed by the PGSC, and will not necessarily be a member of the college which admits you.  For further information about choosing a college please consult the College Guide.

Successful applicants will be notified of their offer of admissions by early March.  An Open Day for all admitted students will be held at the Philosophy Faculty on the afternoon of Wednesday 15 March 2017.

For an application to be considered, it needs to be complete with all required supporting documents and be submitted online or received by the Graduate Admissions and Funding Office by the specified deadline.
