The aim of the Oxford graduate funding opportunities is to enable and encourage academically able students from any nationality.

As the oldest university in the English-speaking world, Oxford is a unique and historic institution. There is no clear date of foundation, but teaching existed at Oxford in some form in 1096 and developed rapidly from 1167, when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris.

English language is the medium of instruction at Oxford, so the candidates must have sufficient fluency in written and spoken English to be able to understand the courses easily.
