Oxford Commonwealth Shared Scholarships

UK Scholarships Grants - Postgraduate Scholarships in United Kingdom for Commonwealth Students

Oxford Commonwealth Shared Scholarships: The Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme is a joint initiative between the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the University of Oxford to support students from developing Commonwealth countries who would not otherwise be able to study in the United Kingdom.

The Commonwealth Scholarships (Covers 100% university fees & living costs)

Commonwealth Scholarships Application Eligibility Criteria:

Candidates should:

  • Hold a first degree at either first or upper second class level
  • Be aware that sponsoring institutions are asked to give priority to candidates under the age of 30 but may give reasons for wishing to make exceptions for older candidates
  • Have not previously studied for one year or more in a developed country
  • Not be employed by a government department (at national level) or a parastatal organisation (employees of universities are normally acceptable, however)
  • Be able to confirm in writing that neither they or their families would otherwise be able to pay for the proposed course of study
  • Be willing to confirm that they will return to their home country as soon as their period of study is complete

Level of study: Taught Master’s courses

You must not be at present living or studying in a developed country and must not have undertaken studies lasting one year or more in a developed country.

You must also be willing to confirm in writing that neither you, nor your family, are able to pay for you to study in the UK (you will be asked to confirm this if you are nominated for the scholarship by Oxford; you do not need to provide confirmation in advance).

You must be willing to return to your home country as soon as your award comes to an end (the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission will only consider requests to extend leave to remain in the UK post-award for those wishing to progress from master's to PhD study and strict conditions will apply).

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit.

The awards will cover university and college fees, a grant for living expenses, return air travel to the UK.
