The application form, used to apply for admissions to a graduate programme, will also be used for applications for funding, such as the AHRC, Clarendon, Ertegun and Hanfling funds. Please be sure to tick the relevant scholarship boxes on the application form if you wish to be considered for any university sources of funding, as we are not allowed to consider you if you have not done so. Ensure that you first check that you are indeed eligible for the particular source of funding before ticking the box.

The Faculty, in conjunction with Christ Church, is offering a full scholarship covering all fees and living expenses for the full duration of fee liability for one successful BPhil in Philosophy or DPhil in Philosophy applicant who will commence their studies in October 2014. All applicants who are offered a place to start on the BPhil or DPhil in October 2014 will automatically be considered for this scholarship, and there is no separate application form or process for this.

However, the applicant who is offered the scholarship will be required to switch their college association to Christ Church (if another college has already offered them a place) to enable them to take up this Christ Church-Philosophy scholarship.
