The good news is that, depending on your qualifications, there are a number of scholarships and grant programs available to help you achieve your dream of studying at Oxford University.
One highly sought-after and prestigious option is the Rhodes Scholarship. This scholarship provides full tuition and living expenses for two years of study at Oxford, as well as a travel allowance to cover economy travel in order to reach the university. It’s open exclusively to citizens of the United States, Canada or any Commonwealth country other than Australia. Applicants must be between 18-25 years old with finished or nearly finished Bachelor’s degrees (or equivalent). In addition, applicants must demonstrate outstanding achievement in academics, leadership potential, energy towards engaging in activities outside their own interests or ability to use their knowledge for humanity’s benefit. Applications usually open around August each year and close at the beginning of October with interviews taking place afterward from November until mid December.
Alternatively, if your academic qualifications meet the requirements set out by Cambridge & Oxford Student Conferences (COSC), you could apply for one of their Cambridge & Oxford Scholarships which provide £2k worth of financial aid for students admitted onto undergraduate courses at either institution – this qualifies both UK/EU citizens but also International Students too! To qualify for consideration under COSC’s scholarship program you’ll need an A Level score above 340 UCAS points or 38 IB Points [equivalent top six A Level grades AABC]. You will also need 5 GCSEs graded 9-4 (A* – C) including English Language & Maths plus an average IELTS score over 7+ where required. Finally a short personal statement letter should include why you feel COSC should sponsor you – this should illustrate what sets you apart from other applicants?
Finally it’s worth noting that both Oxford and Cambridge universities offer generous bursaries which can help supplement student fees if they come from lower income families – typically these involve means tested support packages including fee waivers plus maintenance grants/loans dependent upon family incomes. Before committing yourself abroad make sure that all UK options have been explored first!
I find it difficult to see a scholarship or free will scholarship that can easily take me to Oxford university for undergraduate graduate.
