Graduate courses

St Antony's College accepts applications in a wide range of subjects within the University of Oxford's Social Sciences Division and Humanities Division. 

To help ensure that the candidates to whom we offer a place find a good fit with your research and study interests at St Antony's, we allocate the courses we accept into three groups:

Group 1: Courses we commonly accept. The majority of current students are studying for courses in this group, which are closely related to the College's research interests.

Group 2: Courses we accept. More often than not, we have some students doing these courses each year. The Tutor for Admissions will carefully review the candidate’s application materials for linkage to the College’s research areas/specialisms in reaching a decision.

Group 3: Courses we accept when the candidate’s statement of purpose or research proposal demonstrates a strong link to the College’s research areas/specialisms. Preferably, the application also explains why the candidate wishes to be admitted to St Antony's College.

See the how to apply page for information about how we select candidates for admission to the College.

All courses are offered on a full-time basis unless a part-time option is specified below.

Students who are enrolled at another university ouside the UK and who wish to study for up to three terms as a Visiting Student at St Antony's College should see our Visiting Graduate Students page.

The University of Oxford Graduate Admissions website offers information about all of these courses, including information about subject specific entry requirements, University scholarships and selection criteria.
