The School of Geography and the Environment (SoGE) is excited to offer one fully funded MSc scholarship for UK resident applicants of Black and mixed Black heritage.
SoGE aims to attract and admit students with outstanding academic potential irrespective of their background or ability to pay. Commitment to equality and diversity is at the heart of the academic mission of SoGE, and the SoGE MSc Scholarship for UK applicants of Black heritage will reduce barriers to access to a group currently underrepresented across our postgraduate taught programmes. This scholarship is a positive action measure under s.158 of the Equality Act 2010.
The studentship will cover University tuition fees along with a maintenance allowance (of at least £17,668) and research allowance, and will be available starting in the 2023/24 academic year.
Applications are welcome from eligible candidates with a background in Geography or a related social science, physical or environmental discipline who wish to study on one of SoGE's five MSc programmes:
- MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management
- MSc in Environmental Change and Management
- MSc in Nature, Society and Environmental Governance
- MSc in Sustainability, Enterprise and the Environment
- MSc in Water Science, Policy and Management
Candidates wishing to be considered for this scholarship should apply for a place on one of our MSc programmes in the usual way, by Friday 20 January 2023. This is our deadline for considering all scholarship applications.
The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and potential to an offer-holder of Black or mixed Black ethnicity who is ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom.
Further information on making an application to Oxford University is available on our International Graduate School webpages.
