The completed application for acceptance to the University and the funding or scholarship application forms should be submitted to the relevant Admissions Office. At the University of Oxford the International Office is responsible for administering the University’s scholarship and bursary schemes for international students. It also runs an annual Orientation Programme for new international students, and provides advice about funding and other issues particularly affecting international students, including immigration questions.
Please note that the Noon Foundation receives many more applications for funding than it can offer.
Awards are generally for postgraduate study. However, undergraduate awards are also considered for suitable candidates.
