The University of Oxford offers a number of Reach Oxford Scholarships to students from low-income countries who, for political or financial reasons, or because suitable educational facilities do not exist, cannot study for a degree in their own countries. The undergraduate scholarships for students commencing studies in AY 2020 are for studies in all subjects except medicine.


The scholarships cover university fees and college fees, a grant for living expenses and 1 return air fare per year. Scholarships will be given for the entire study period of 3 or 4 years, depending on course length. Two to 3 scholarships will be awarded.


Applicants must be nationals of countries who receive official development assistance from the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) (see Official Website for eligible countries). Scholars chosen would be those of the highest academic ability, with outstanding examination results. Financial need and social commitment are also major criteria for selection. Applicants should be intending to return to their country of ordinary residence following their studies. Priority will be given to students who have not studied at undergraduate level before. Scholarship applicants must have already been offered a place at Oxford.


Applications for admission into the undergraduate study programmes must be done online through UCAS by 15 October 2019. Applications for scholarships are to be submitted by 12 February 2020.
