Funding opportunities for graduate studies in Modern Languages at Oxford

In 2018, almost 75% of the Faculty’s new PGR students received funding for their DPhil studies, and a number of awards for the MSt courses were also granted.  With access to a range of schemes within the Faculty and wider Humanities Division/University, applicants applying for the 11 January 2019 admissions deadline are automatically considered for many funding opportunities, and may be eligible to apply for a number of others.


The Faculty is part of the AHRC Open-Oxford-Cambridge Doctoral Training Programme which will offer at least 77 studentships each year across the range of  arts and humanities subject areas in the three participating institutions; and, as part of the Humanities Division, applicants for the Faculty’s graduate degrees can also apply for the Ertegun Scholarship programme and be considered for the Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarships and UK BAME Studentships in the Humanities.  In the wider University, there are over 1,000 Clarendon scholarships available each year.  Specific to the Faculty, we are grateful to donors for support of specific grants including Lidl who are supporting one DPhil studentship each year in German, and the Katritzsky Foundation who are offering funding for a DPhil in German Studies for entry in 2019.


Further details of our funding opportunities for post-graduate study are available here, and there is more information about other funding within the Humanities Division here.
