Admissions Procedure and Entry Requirements

Admissions Procedure

For all graduate courses in the Faculty of Philosophy, applications including all supporting material must arrive at the Graduate Admissions and Funding Office by the closing date, for admission in the following October. Applicants are not normally interviewed and late applications will not be considered.

Candidates must be accepted by the Philosophy Graduate Studies Committee (‘PGSC’) and then by a college. You can state a college preference on your application form or, if you have no particular preference, the Graduate Admissions and Funding (GAF) system will assign a college to you depending on college availability. Stating a college preference or letting the GAF system assign you a college will not affect how we assess your application. It is not necessary to apply to the college of a particular teacher by whom you hope to be supervised. Your supervisor will be appointed by the PGSC, and will not necessarily be a member of the college which admits you. For further information about choosing a college please consult the College Guide.

Successful applicants will be notified of their offer of admissions by early March. An Open Day for all admitted students will be held at the Philosophy Centre (Radcliffe Humanities, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, OX2 6GG) the afternoon of Wednesday 15 March 2017.
