Oxford provides its graduate students with some of the very best facilities for studying Theology and Religion available anywhere. It offers world-class research resources and supervision by experts in their field.
Graduate study at the University of Oxford is widely recognised as both rewarding and a significant investment. Applications are sought from students with outstanding academic potential and the ability to benefit from an Oxford course whatever their background or personal circumstances.
Information about the fees charged for each course can be found on the Graduate Fees and Funding website.
The University of Oxford, Humanities Division, Faculty of Theology and Religion, other faculties and departments, and colleges are actively engaged in raising funds for graduate scholarships.
Every year, a significant proportion of the Faculty’s graduate applicants secure support for their studies from a range of public and private funding bodies and scholarship schemes.
Information about the scholarships available for those applying for, or currently studying, any one particular course or programme of study, including details of the scholarship amount, duration, eligibility and closing date, can be found by using the Fees, Funding and Scholarship search facility.
All applicants who apply by the Early January Application Deadline and are offered a place on a graduate course will be considered automatically for those scholarships for which they are eligible. Some scholarships require additional application materials, and applicants are advised to read the details of the application requirements for each scholarship carefully.
Information about some of the major sources of funding available to graduate applicants and existing students is provided further below.
Please be aware that financial support is limited. Applicants are advised to research the funding opportunities available for their course before applying. Most of the scholarships that provide full funding are available only to those starting a new course. Funding opportunities available to students who have already started their course are usually much more limited.
Opportunities to seek employment during term time are normally limited by the full-time requirements of most of the faculty’s courses and course-related commitments during the Christmas, Easter and summer vacations. Please note that the demand for part-time paid work in Oxford often exceeds the amount of paid work that is available, whether academic or non-academic paid work.
