Graduates are encouraged to make use of these opportunities as widely as possible. Striking the right balance between intellectual curiosity and discipline, and remaining focused without becoming blinkered, is an integral part of a successful graduate career. The Oxford environment provides all the ingredients for you to develop these skills while engaging fruitfully with others in the field.
All graduate students have an academic supervisor (or sometimes two or more co-supervisors) with expertise in relevant areas, to help you identify and acquire the knowledge and skills you need to complete your research. You don’t need to find your own supervisor before you apply.
268 graduate students were admitted in October 2021, with an overall 50:50 female-male balance. Approximately 56% of the 2021 students are from beyond the UK, and about 20% received funding from the university.
The Faculty offers a range of taught graduate courses (Masters) as well as three research-based DPhil options.
