A list of courses for which St Catherine’s accepts graduate students is available at https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate/colleges/st-catherines-college.
All of these Graduate Scholarships may be held in conjunction with an award from another body, other than another Oxford College, and carry entitlement to limited High Table dining rights. With the exception of the Light Senior Scholarships, they also carry entitlement to up to two years single accommodation on the main college site or in St Catherine’s House (to be paid for by the recipient at the current room charge rate), which should be taken in the first two years of the scholarship.
Students at other colleges are eligible to apply for all of these scholarships apart from the Light Senior Scholarships, but would need to migrate to St Catherine’s to take up the scholarship if their application was successful.
All of these scholarships, apart from the Light Senior Scholarships, are open to new graduate students commencing graduate study at Oxford in October 2019, and to current graduate students who will have completed no more than two years of graduate research degree study at Oxford in October 2019.
Before awarding any Scholarship, the College must be satisfied that sufficient funding is available to cover course fees.
