Who is eligible?

Some courses require entrance examinations.  It is the applicant’s responsibility to identify the eligibility requirements of their chosen course.

Clarendon Scholarships are awarded on the basis of outstanding academic merit and potential to graduate students from all around the world. 

Selection process

This scholarship will be assessed and offered based on the applicant’s New College Oxford application. Selection criteria will vary slightly depending on the subject area.

Academic divisions in New College will assess applications.  Generally, applications are assessed against the following criteria:

  • Academic record – an excellent academic record is essential
  • Aptitude for the proposed course of study
  • Student motivation

Following initial selection and recommendation by the relevant academic divisions, Clarendon will make the final decision regarding offer of scholarship.

The successful applicant will be notified of being awarded the scholarship concurrent with being offered a place at New College.

NOTE that UTS is not involved in the assessment of applications for offers to the DPhil program at University of Oxford, nor the selection of Clarendon scholarships.

The scholarship is tenable in any subject areas offered at New College. These subject areas can be found at https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate/colleges/new-college?wssl=1
