You asked: When will I know if I’ve been awarded a scholarship?

Excellent question! Here’s a little bit more about what to expect over the coming weeks.

Are funding offers sent at the same time as departmental offers?

If you’re one of the 8,000-ish people who get that big ‘Yes’ from a department you could be sent an offer of funding at the same time, though many are sent separately later on.

When will you contact me?

Awards are made between late February and June — for example, Clarendon Fund offers are usually sent out by early April. You can find notification dates via our Scholarships A-Z listing.

Will you let me know if I’m not successful in applying for a scholarship?

The University only notifies successful scholarship applicants and offers are almost always sent by email.

Competition is very strong but we’re offering over 1,000 full (fees + living costs) awards for courses starting in 2019–20. Good luck with your application!
