Award details

The award pays all tuition and college fees for home or EU applicants and an annual maintenance grant of £15,000. International students who would be classed as overseas for fee purposes will need to pay the difference between the home/EU fee rate and the overseas rate. The usual University of Oxford eligibility rules apply to these studentships. Please see (http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate) for more information.

The closing date for applications is 19th January 2018, although we strongly recommend submitting all your materials a week or two early since applications missing any part of the required materials (including letters of reference) cannot be considered.

Interviews will be held in either February or March 2018. Further details on the Oxford Internet Institute are available at http://www.oii.ox.ac.uk. Informal inquiries should be made to Laura Maynard, Oxford Internet Institute (teaching@oii.ox.ac.uk).
