University Of Oxford Commonwealth Shared Scholarships 2024/2025 For Developing Countries


University of Oxford Commonwealth Shared Scholarships 2024/2025: The University of Oxford is offering the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme for students from select developing countries.


The scholarship covers course fees in their entirety and provides a grant for living costs for full-time students of at least £14,832, return airfares from your home country plus a warm clothing allowance and study travel and thesis grants. The scholarship is jointly funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and the University. It supports students from developing Commonwealth countries who would not otherwise be able to study in the United Kingdom.


Candidates for University of Oxford Commonwealth Shared Scholarships must:

  • Hold a first degree at either first class or upper second class level;

  • Be nationals of a Commonwealth developing country, and not at present living or studying in a developed country;

  • Have not undertaken studies lasting one year or more in a developed country;

  • Be able to confirm in writing that neither they nor their families are able to pay for them to study in the UK (you will be asked to confirm this if you are nominated for the scholarship by Oxford – you do not need to provide confirmation in advance);

  • Be willing to return to their home country as soon as their award comes to an end (the Commission will only consider requests to extend leave to remain in the UK post-award for those wishing to progress from Master’s to PhD study and strict conditions will apply).

Deadline: December 14, 2023
