New Delhi:  The wait will be over soon for Indian students who wish to study at the Oxford University. The new admission cycle for graduate courses will begin on September 1, 2017 for the 2018-19 batch. At present there are 386 Indian students enrolled at the University in various courses and 144 Indian nationals make up the academic staff on campus. The intake is less but the competition is high which is why students applying to the university need to be on the top of their game. The admission to Oxford is not through some entrance exam but on the basis of the entry requirements, statement of purpose, paper or essay submitted by the applicant and possibly an interview.

While the application process is not a tough nut, there are certain things which an applicant should arrange before they begin their application.

Finding the Right Course

Go to the University website and browse through the courses and find the ones which fit the bill. The course list is available either A-Z or by department. While zeroing in on the course you wish to apply for keep the following points in mind:
  • What is your objective behind studying a particular subject?
  • Does the said course offer the kind of research opportunities you are seeking?
  • Research future scope and possibilities in related field of the course you wish to study.
If possible, contact alumni or people from the same field and get their opinion.

Course Requirement

Check the course page for your desired course and check the eligibility requirements and application process for the same. Each course has a specific eligibility requirement and applicants must either already have fulfilled the requirements or should be on their way to achieve the minimum required grades and qualification.

Before Applying

Depending upon the course, applicants would need to submit a statement of purpose and an essay along with the application. Make a list of all the documents and all other documents you need to submit with the application and prepare them beforehand.

With your application, you would also need to attach an official transcript of your marks and need referees who would submit references for you. Apply for official transcript to your university of institute well before time in order to avoid any last minute hassles. Also contact your referees who should submit their refernecs before the deadline.

Application Process

The application window for the admission in the 2018-19 class will begin from September 1, 2017. Applicants could begin by creating an account and registering their referees. If they need, applicants can provide college preference too. Before paying the application fee make sure that you have chosen the right course and department and uploaded all the required documents. After paying application fee, submit your application. You will receive an automatic email confirmation for your submission.

An applicant can always login to their application and access Graduate Applicant Self Service to check when each of their references have been submitted. After the university has received all the required documents, it will send a final notification email.
