Selection criteria for admission

Full details of the selection criteria for admission to the four year funded (four year funded) programme in Population Health are available on the Graduate Admissions and Funding webpage for this course.

Applying to the University

All applications for graduate study are processed on the University's Student System. Please visit the Applying for graduate study pages for full details.

Candidates are advised to refer to the Application Guide and selection criteria prior to making an application. An application fee of £50 per programme is required prior to uploading your complete application; this fee is payable only once at the point of initial application for the four year funded programme.

College Membership 

The University of Oxford is a collegiate university. When you receive an offer from the department then your application will also be considered for a place at a college. You can state a college preference on your application form or, if you have no particular preference, you will be assigned to a college. Details of the colleges that accept students on to four year funded programme can be found on the Graduate Admission and Funding website; please note that typically most four year funded students would remain at the same College for both elements of the programme, and in some cases this may be required to ensure continuity of the funding.
