Oxford is at the international forefront of research in the humanities, attracting outstanding students, academics and researchers from across the globe. Our postgraduate students undertake their studies and research in a stimulating, challenging and highly rewarding intellectual environment.
The University of Oxford has four academic divisions, within which are individual departments, faculties or other centres, and a Department for Continuing Education, which offers courses across a range of subjects. For information about courses in Humanities, see:
Application deadlines for each postgraduate course at Oxford are listed on the relevant course pages on the University’s Graduate Admissions website. Some courses accept applications under more than one deadline, but if you wish to be considered for scholarship funding you must make sure you apply by the relevant January deadline. If more than one application deadline is listed for your chosen graduate course, this means that the department to which you are applying considers applications in two or more separate batches.
The University website provides information and advice to prospective postgraduate students about tuition and college fees, fee status and fee liability, other specific costs related to some courses of study, such as field trips and consumables, and living costs in Oxford.
