2018 – 19 Application Deadline
All applications completed by 12 noon on Monday 8 January 2018 will automatically be considered for all relevant competitive University funding including NDPH scholarships, the MRC, the Clarendon Fund, Oxford Colleges and other charitable sources.

Entry Requirements for admission
Full details of the entry requirements for admission to the DPhil in Population Health are available on the Graduate Admissions webpage for this course.
Applying to the University
All applications for graduate study are processed on the University's Student System. See Applying for graduate study for full details.
Candidates are advised to refer to the Application Guide before making an application. An application fee of £75 per programme is required prior to uploading your complete application. This application fee is waived for students currently on a programme of study at the University of Oxford.
Waivers for the graduate application fee are available for this course for applicants who meet the academic entry requirements and are ordinarily resident in a country defined by the World Bank Country Groups for low and middle income economies. If you meet the academic entry requirements but are not ordinarily resident in one of these countries, and would not be able to submit an application on cost grounds, you can submit a statement of need to have the £75 graduate application fee waived.
To apply for a waiver, please submit a waiver request form.
Waiver requests must be submitted by 1 December 2017. Decisions will be communicated on a rolling basis approximately 1 week after the request is submitted. If you have already started an application before being granted a fee waiver, the application type can be easily changed to reflect this, so you can safely begin work on an application before applying for a waiver.
Information from the fee waiver application will not be seen by the admissions committee and will not be used in admissions decisions.
The Department recognises that some applicants may still be studying and may not yet have their full academic and/or English language test results. Please do apply for a fee waiver if you meet the above criteria.
Good academic practice
