User Review( votes)
1. Up to six Felix financial aid positions will be offered at each of the three institutions above for Indian graduates taking up places in September/October 2009 for:
(i) Taught postgraduate Master’s courses (MSc, MAgrSc, MA, LLM, etc.) = 1 or 2 academic years; or
(ii) Master’s degrees by research (MPhil) = 2 academic years; or
(iii) Doctoral degrees by research (PhD/DPhil) = 3 academic years,
Please note that not all the above programmes are available at each institution.
Felix The studentships are intended forIndian students to study in UK who would be unable, without financial assistance, to take up their place. You should ensure that you apply for the correct course, as applications for an extension of a course or other additional funding will not be considered. Candidates must not, once installed at the relevant university, apply for any scholarship that would interfere with the tenure of the Felix Scholarship.
2. Application for a Felix Scholarship can be made through only one of the three academic institutions. Applicants must already have submitted a formal application for admission through one of the institutions before applying for a Felix Scholarship.
3. Commencing the academic year 2007/08 the Felix support will permit Felix Master’s alumni who have obtained a Distinction to apply for a PhD/DPhil Felix scholarship. Exactly the same criteria and application process will apply to Felix Master’s alumni as apply to any other candidate applying for a PhD/DPhil scholarship. Only one such support will be granted to each university per year. Candidates should take into account the fact that because the results of Master’s examinations are notified after the commencement of an academic year, there will be a one-year gap between finishing a Master’s course and commencing a PhD/DPhil course.
4. Candidates must apply direct to Oxford/Reading/SOAS for admission to the course they wish to study there. Detailed advice on such matters as course application forms, arrangements for fieldwork, etc., will be available on request from any of the three institutions (but about their own courses only). Applications for admission to courses should be submitted as early as possible.
