MPhil Scholarships in the Humanities and Social Sciences
St Cross College invites applications for two MPhil Scholarships from students who will begin studying at the University of Oxford in the academic year 2018-2019 for an MPhil degree in any of the humanities and social science disciplines or for the BPhil degree in Philosophy. Applicants must list St Cross College as their first choice college on their Graduate Admissions application in order to be eligible to apply for these Scholarships.
The Scholarships each have the value of £4,000 per annum, to cover the annual College fee (£3,021 for 2017-2018) and a small stipend, and are each tenable for two years coterminous with College fee liability (but only one year for the one-year MPhil in Law course). The two successful scholars will be guaranteed to have a room in College accommodation (at the standard rent) for the first year of their course. Applications should be received by the application deadline of Friday 9th March 2018.
St Cross College is a graduate college of the University of Oxford. It offers an outstanding academic environment dedicated to the pursuit of excellence within the Collegiate University.
St Cross is home to scholars from a wide spectrum of academic disciplines and is atypical of the Oxford tradition in that the College does not have separate common rooms for its Senior and Junior Members or a high table in hall. Instead there are central common rooms to be used by all College Members and open seating in Hall. The College believes that this egalitarianism fosters a productive intellectual environment where Senior and Junior Members can form meaningful relationships to the betterment of their research. The Fellowship of St Cross College has the highest proportion of Professors of any of the Oxford graduate colleges, thus offering our students unequalled access to some of the University's greatest minds.
The St Cross College community is diverse with over 60% of students hailing from overseas; the common room is a wonderful mixture of language and cultures. Situated on St Giles, right in the very heart of Oxford City, St Cross College is conveniently located for a large number of departments, libraries and Institutes. Furthermore social hotspots of the city like Little Clarendon Street, George Street and Oxford Castle are only minutes away.
