Graduate Opportunities Scholarship

1 April 2020

Brasenose College in conjunction with the Department of Education seeks to award a graduate opportunities scholarship. Candidates will have an offer of admission to the University of Oxford for the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) or the MSc in Learning and Teaching.

The scholarship is one of several initiatives that the University is taking as part of its Race Equality Charter and is a positive action measure under s.158 of the Equality Act 2010. The Department of Education and Brasenose College are committed to attracting the very best candidates for Taught Master’s degrees, irrespective of their background or ability to pay. Black teachers are underrepresented in UK schools, particularly at senior levels, and the proportion of highly qualified Black students in Education Studies at Oxford is lower than across the rest of the UK. It is hoped that the graduate opportunity scholarship will encourage more students from these backgrounds to apply for the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) or the MSc in Learning and Teaching.

This scholarship is only open to offer holders with home fee status (see http://www.ox.ac.uk/students/fees-funding/fees/status ) who identify with one of the following categories of ethnicity:
• Black African
• Black Caribbean
• Black Other
• Mixed/multiple, including Black African, Black Caribbean or Black Other

The maximum value of this award is £25,000 which is intended to cover the full course fee plus a stipend. The award will be reduced if the recipient is also in receipt of a PGCE scholarship or bursary or equivalent. The award is made for the full duration of the period of fee liability for the agreed course, subject to satisfactory academic progress being made.

This award is conditional on the holder becoming a member of Brasenose College. The applications of all eligible candidates will be automatically considered on the basis of the University application form for graduate study, regardless of whether Brasenose is identified as the college of preference. The successful candidate will be offered a place at Brasenose College in order to take up the award, and this will take the place of any earlier college offer.

To be eligible, applicants must submit their applications to the University of Oxford for either the PGCE or the MSc in Learning and Teaching by 1 April 2020. Once application decisions have been made, those offered places on the PGCE or the MSc Learning and Teaching will be invited to apply for the scholarship, which will involve the completion of a form confirming that they meet the eligibility criteria. Eligible offer-holders will then be considered for the scholarship based upon the University application form.
