Funding and scholarships

Students on the MSc/MPhil Environmental Change and Management course have received over 260 scholarships since we began teaching in 1994. Over 70% of our students receive full or partial support to help fund their studies. A limited number of scholarships are available through the ECI, details of which are given below. Many other scholarships are sought independently by students, often from their own countries.


Scholarships administered by the ECI

Unless stated otherwise, there are no application forms for these scholarships. Applicants should make clear that they are interested in being considered for the scholarships by mentioning the scholarship(s) in the 'funding information' section of the Oxford University Application Form. Decisions regarding scholarships are made in consultation with the colleges after offers of places on the MSc/MPhil have been made, generally in April and May. Students may be invited to move from their selected college to take up a scholarship at another college.

The majority of students on the MSc course successfully compete for International Scholarships, details of which are in the Graduate . These scholarships (such as Rhodes, Marshall, British Chevening and Shell) are not specific to our course and deadlines for application are varied and early.

The University of Oxford awards about 100 Clarendon Bursaries for postgraduate students in any subject. These are extremely competitive awards. Over 30 MSc applicants usually apply for Clarendon Bursaries but only a few, if any, will be awarded to our students.
