Scholarships and funding



Scholarship opportunities are available from Saïd Business School, Oxford University, Oxford's colleges, and external sources.

Scholarships are available on our degree programmes and diplomas, funded by a variety of sources. Some have fixed application deadlines and some require an additional action of candidates in order to be considered.  

Saïd Business School Scholarships

Our scholarships are offered by, or closely associated with the School.

For some scholarships, you are required to submit a scholarship essay and/or tick the relevant box in the funding section of your application form.

Scholarship information is listed here by each individual programme of study.


DPhil programmes

Our DPhil students usually receive full funding over four years, covering course fees and a living expenses stipend. We may ask you to submit additional funding applications and also ask that you identify and pursue external funding opportunities, in order to achieve this.

Executive MBA

MBA and 1+1 MBA

Some of our MBA scholarships have fixed application deadlines. The remainder are awarded following each MBA admissions stage. All eligible offer-holders are considered at each MBA admissions deadline, however we cannot guarantee the availability of these scholarships in our later application stages, so early application to the MBA programme is recommended.

University and College scholarships


Oxford scholarships are open to applicants who apply to courses that start in September or October and who apply by the course's January deadline.

For over two thirds of Oxford scholarships, there’s no separate scholarship application process or extra supporting documentation required. Based on the information supplied in your course application, you will be automatically considered for scholarships where you meet the eligibility criteria.

To find out about scholarships that do require an additional application or action, use the University's Fees, funding and scholarship search to find opportunities relevant to you and your course, and look at individual college websites. You can also visit the A-Z of Scholarships page to view the list of University scholarships available across all graduate programmes.

Loans and external funding


Loans, scholarships and grants are available from organisations external to the University.

Our students often use external scholarships, grants, and student loans to partially or fully fund their course fees and/or living expenses. 

Loan funding is dependent on your country of residence, as it is often linked to government or state-run schemes.
